I started out making this card for AAA Cards Game #38, A Hole In My Card... and then it struck me that the colors required for CAS Colours & Sketches #123 were just perfect for the design in Sahara Sand, Soft Suede & Tangerine Tango!
My idea was to have a little owl peaking out from his front door in a tree. I don't have any tree stamps that are "card" sized so I used the Hardwood background stamp by SU to create my tree.
My owl is from the PTI set called Polka Dot Parade #11 and he thankfully has matching dies to cut him out.
My sentiment is a combination of the owl's belly and a die-cut "you" from Stampin' Up's Hello You Thinlits set.
I like how the card turned out overall... I wish though that I had had that tree stamp I was trying to create... I'm not completely happy with the way that part looks.
Thanks for stopping by, hopefully it's not cold and snowing where you are today :)
