Bright and Beautiful


Here's a card I made for "cards for kids" that I'm entering into a few challenges. I used a SU! owl punch along with a Spellbinders Lotus die, and got busy using lots of snippets. The sentiment is from Deedee's Digis and seemed to work perfectly for this little owl trying to show off like a peacock.

I'm sharing this at the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - all things bright and beautiful

ScrapyLand #11 - anything goes (I used a Spellbinder Lotus die)

Snippets Playground #162 - must use snippets

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a perfect day!

I love the way this cute little owl has put on his peacock coat. LOL I also really like that background paper. The sentiment is perfect for the Hospitalized Kids. Have a good wait. We are waiting on some snow, but none yet, maybe around noon time now.

That owl makes a good peacock, Carol. Super way to use that Lotus die. I love the sentiment.

That is quite special, Carol. I love how you did the replacement in the SB die, and then the google eyes made it a bit whimsical.

Too much fun! Love the look on that cute owl and the googly eyes are precious. I've never seen that die before and it's SO pretty!!! The sentiment is perfect for the image too. Oh, and glad you're playing at Scrapy Land challenges too!

I just fielded a message from my friend wanting to borrow the owl punch desperately. Now I want to know what she is up to with it. I wonder if she is making peacocks?!

You card is so clever! I like the your "peacock" even has a fancy chest!

Cute card! Yes, I agree with some of the comments said before me. You are the queen of finding creative ways to use "snippets!"

OH MY Word! This is fabulously creative! I have this die and was thinking on giving it away, after seeing this I don't think so :).
