Get Well Little Owl

The little owl was built from the build an owl punch by Stampin Up.  He is tucked inside the tree trunk.  The tree was done with the  Coredination Card Stock Early Espresso run through the big shot in the wood grain embossing folder and then sanded to show the beautiful wood grain.  I added the scallop circle with my "Get Well" stamp (now retired) from stampin up.
The little heart with rinestone bling and the scallop trim border addes the special details that make this card special.
Happy stamping!

Flying High Happy Birthday

The Simple Salutation Challenge this week was to use transportation on your card for example, planes, trains or cars.  I went straight to my MDS2 program and downloaded a little plane which I colored red and hide punches behind the windows to add some more  color.  The clouds are punch from the scallop oval layered with bashful blue card stock and run through the big shop with the polka dots embossing folder.  My greeting today is the "Happy Birthday" from the Background Fun stamp set by Mark's fines Papers.
Happy Stamping!
