Two owls

   I have quite a collection of dies, so I thought I would try creating a card that used only dies, omitting any stamping or decoupage. Also my daughter has a friend who is crazy about owls.
   I began by cutting  brown and grey core'dinations card stock and cream card so that they were the correct sizes to mat and layer. I then used a Spellbinders oval die to cut two ovals in the brown core'dinations cardstock. Positioning this over the grey core'dinations card stock I lined up a smaller die from the same set to cut ovals in the grey core'dinations cardstock. I wrapped cream ribbon round the brown cardstock and then matted and layered all three pieces of card. I added a bow to the ribbon strip.
   From dark brown mirri card I cut out two owls using dies from Tattered Lace. I attached these to the card with gel glue to give a little bit of dimension. The ivy was cut from various shades of green mirri card using a Marianne Craftables die and positioned around the ovals. Finally I used Tattered Lace dies to cut out the sentiment from cream core'dinations cardstock.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Allsorts - birds and feathers
   Crafty Calendar - things with wings
   A Little Bit Crafty - the birds and the bees
   Crafting From The Heart - anything goes
   Party Time Tuesday - anything goes
   Through The Purple Haze - creativity strikes
