Whoo Loves Ya, Baby?

     Hey, look, a shaped card !  I do those so rarely because, although I love dies, I have very few which work as the overall shape for a card, size being the primary problem.  But this is a new-to-me Tonic Studios die set and I couldn't wait to use it.

     The owl is the current image from the progressive challenge at Limited Runs.  I used polychromos pencils and ProMarkers to color him, then die cut the image with a simple circle die from QuicKutz.  I cut the card shape with the largest die from the Tonic Studios set, just the outer circle.  Then I used that same die plus one of the smaller half circles to cut the yellow, polka dot dp which I layered onto the card front.  Lastly, I added the image circle and the bow.   I wanted to keep it as simple as possible so that the die work would shine.

     How can it be almost the end of July, for goodness sake?  2017 is more than half gone, many of us are already thinking about the Back to School sales and kids' fall clothes.  It'll be Halloween/ Thanksgiving/ harvest festivals before we know it, and then the Christmas madhouse will land on our doorstep.  Whew!  I think I'll leave for another two weeks of travel and pretend that it's still last spring.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
