Friendly Owls

I love it when you finally get around to making a card with a stamp that's been in your stash for a long time... like this great image of owls in a tree by Memory Box Stamps! I bought this stamp well over a year ago, when I first discovered Memory Box as something to remind me to bring them into our store! I ordered the image again when we finally brought Memory Box to Creative Accents in February and finally, I've got a card to show ya!
Here's a close up of the image- I raised up the owls for some extra dimension on this card.
I've used the current CPS Card Sketch for my layout. I started with a kraft base for my card then layered on papers from the fabulous For the Record collection by Echo Park. I've embellished with twine from the Twinery and pearls. I added extra texture by stamping over my image with a 'thank you' definition from Hero Arts and distressing the edges, as well as adding some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape to my background. My main sentiment is also from Hero Arts.

Thanks for reading! Hope you like the card.
