Owl Be Your Friend with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday crafty peeps!  It's my day over at Cheery Lynn Designs blog today.

My card features some of our new release dies that I just fell in love with, the Birch Tree with Cute Critters and the Owls with Gears.  It's always fun to create cards with both masculine and feminine appeal and these dies are perfect for the task!

I added a touch of Flower Soft to the stomach of the small owl on the right for texture.  My clouds are cut from a glassine bag, then after attaching with a touch of glossy accents, I added some Picket Fence distress stickles on the two right, a touch of Rock Candy on the left cloud.

I cut some pieces of two different French Flair Silver Stackers to create my kraft "hills" for the background.  I strategically started with my tree to cover the point, then trimmed it.  I cut a small piece of glassine, then inked it and adhered to my Owl with Gears from the back.

I've inked my edges lightly of the hills and critters using a q-tip to highlight some of the notches in the sweet little birch tree for fun.
