Wise Owl in a Tree

First off it must be said that this is not an original idea, I stole it (CASed it) from the very talented Anya. Here is the link to her card. As soon as I saw hers I knew that I needed to get out Wise Owl and duplicate her idea. Its genius!
Card Deets:
1. Make the base from PTI kraft. Use part of the plaid stamp from Waltzingmouse Off beat backgrounds for the tree detail. Ink up the whole thing with PTI tea ink duo.
2. Cut a hole in the base with your favorite nestie. Cut a slightly larger mat out of PTI In Bloom paper and adhere it inside.
3. Stamp wise owl on PTI white and color with copics. Paper piece belly. Add a twill branch for him to sit on.
4. Stamp on sentiment in dark chocolate. All done!

You are too cute. I love everything about this little guy.. your little plaid bits for the tree, the leaves you stamped, and the background paper you used! I am flattered you were so inspired :)
