Hoot of a Friend
Recently I was honored to have been asked to make a sample for the Inspiration Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers. I loved the site, Greenheart Shop, so much, I had to make two cards because I could not choose which piece of inspiration I loved the most! Today I'm sharing a card inspired by this sweet little wool owl birdhouse.
I inked up the new Owl Be There set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and attempted to stick to the fun colors of the inspiration piece. I think I ended up a smidge pinker than the original owl, but he's still cute! I also added some hand-stitching to two of the panels, and snuck some of my favorite lace tape from Love My Tapes on there too.
