Let Old Wrinkles Come

I had a new owl stamp and sentiment that I was dying to get inky.  
And I found several owl challenges out there for inspiration!  
Here is a card I made using them!'
I stamped the background with Tim Holtz Tree Line stamps and PTI's  Birch Background.  I embossed the owl on a separate piece, die cut the piece, sponged it with Distress Ink and layered it over the background with foam dots.  I added the fun eyelash google eyes and embossed the sentiment  below the inkings.

I'm linking my card to:
My card is layered mixed media. Inspired by the owls and their big eyes!

I was inspired by an owl banner from Hayneedle

So creative how you put this fun card together. The background card is fabulous and the die cut with the owl stamped on it and with the googly eyes is wonderful x

I love your wonderful background (layering the birch bG stamp over the trees), Julia!
It makes a beautiful forest scene with the sponged owl piece. I saw the original owl stamp, and found that the fun eyelash googly eyes totally changed the facial expression. :-)
I googled the sentiment - It's perfect for a birthday card. Hideko xx
