Holly Owl

Hello lovely peeps

It's the first Saturday of the month which means it is time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar.
The theme this month is

 'Christmas Time'

and the sponsor is Sami Stamp

For my inspiration card I have used Holly Owl

First I coloured the image using Promarkers and then doodled a border with a black fineliner pen.

I layered up a 7x7" card blank with First Edition/CraftArtist papers (which I edged with Pumice Stone distress ink), and added some some ribbon/twine

[Edit-I've added a pic of the ribbon because it's hard to make out]

To echo the holly hanging from the branches I made my own embellishment using matching card and a Sizzix Original die and attached it to silver wire with a glue gun

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
  Crafty Ribbons #178 Christmas..with ribbon

This is lovely Katrina - I love seeing 'alternative' colours on Christmas cards although I'm not very good at choosing them myself. Mind you I've just bought the First Edition paper pad myself so I've made a start! Wonderful card. Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

The map also fits the first challenge at the Sweet Stampers.

Thank you Christelle. There is ribbon there but it's white organza and hard to see. I have added a close-up now :o)
