CPS Challenge 111


Princely Owl.
Originally uploaded by pajalu (Paula)

Hi all,

I decided that this is the card for my nephew Zac :). I think it's more "9 yr old manly" if you know what I mean. The last one was a bit iffy for a boy.

I have entered this card for the CPS challenge & the Hero Arts "My Message" challenge. I love the way the top of the card turned out. Especially that cute owl. I just had to give him a crown, as he looked so regal. I decided to cut the trees out & give them a little lift. I raised the tops of them up on foam tape. I then embossed the message in Seafoam white embossing powder. I used a gel pen to add the dots. This time around I left "friend" off the message so I can put nephew on the inside. TFL & TTFN

Soooo cute Paula - love all the little elements here. Popped trees look super, owl is adorable, and I love the clear circle behind him like the moon.
