Wise Owl is Ready for Fall

Good morning friends! I have been stamping my little heart out this past week. I have been using lots of older sets too! Whats the use of keeping them if they dont get used? Today features stamps from Papertrey Ink (surprise, surprise...LOL). The sets are Wise Owl, Out on a Limb, and Birthday Basics. I started with a base of cream cardstock. I stamped the branch in dark chocolate and the leaves in a variety of inks including: versamagic pumpkin spice and mango, pti orange zest and terracotta tile. I stamped my owls on a scrap piece of cream and colored and cut them out with my copics. I added some pp (PTI) and summer sunrise card and a strip of dark chocolate twill.
Before I go I have to give a little shout out to my first baby. My little girl turns 10 today! Where does the time go?

This card is perfect! Seriously. It is so well balanced, wonderful colors, simple sentiment placed just right... you should submit this card! Or you could send it to me? Ha! Just love it and please quit using this set cause I am 2 seconds away from ordering it all because of you! So cute.

What a cute, clever card Michele! I love how you busted out the older sets to create this. And I agree with Patty that you should submit this one. Very well done!

Happy Birthday to your daughter! The big one-oh!!

This is soo darn cute! I have this owl set and have only used it one time but how you've used the owl to "sit" on the branch is a great idea!

The reason you're not supposed to use old sets is that it makes me *need* them! LOL! Whenever I see Mr. Owl I'm convinced that I need to add it to my cart...but somehow he always jumps out because he isn't used enough. This card is going to push me over the edge, I think! Thanks...I think!
