Christmas Owls

     My daughter adores owls and has collected them in many forms for several years now.  I tend to think of them as creatures for fall but when I got this image (kindly stamped for me by a friend), I knew it would be perfect for her Christmas card this year.

     I used ProMarkers to color the image, then cut it with my Fiskars paper cutter and inked the edges.  I chose papers from my favorite Christmas pad, "Father Christmas" by Bo Bunny.  It has such perfect shades of red and green, along with the light distressing which make delightful Christmas cards.

     I added three wraps of very narrow, green, satin ribbon before layering on the image piece.  I cut two strips of stripped paper, glittered and embossed, and put those along the top and bottom.  The sentiment is from a kit I purchased a few years back, and the little wreath had been in my stash since last year.

     For a tiny bit more sparkle, I added the diamond-shaped "gems" and at that point, it was finished.
