MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends #14

The MFP Speedy the Cat's Friend's challenge #14 this week is to make a thank-you card. I was fortunate enough to win a brand new unreleased stamp set from MFP, so this owl image is from that new set titled "Owl Be There." I stamped the image with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed it with clear detail ep, then colored it with Tombow markers. Next I cut the image out and popped it up on 2 Spellbinders Labels 10 diecuts. The card stock is by prisma and I used the Birchtone shades of lt, med, and dark. I did the recessed diamonds technique on the lighter shade for the background, using Pumice Stone distress ink. The photo turns and sentiment frame are HodgePodge Hardware from SU! and I made the faux brads on the diecuts by using a paper punch and dotting with CTMH liquid glass. The sentiment is from a G Studio set I found at Michaels.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
