Day Five of the "Seven Days of Owls"

Good Afternoon Everyone and welcome to day five of my series "Seven Days of Owls". Today's card has a winter theme. Something I find difficult to do when the weather is hot & humid. Never the less here is today's card.

This is an A2 card. The owl was cut  at 3.25 using my Cricut cartridge Hoot & Holler cut #34. This is a lite cart. that is exclusive to Walmart. I like it because all the images are all Owl related. The images are all very easy to layer too. I did modify this image by snipping off the leaves on the branches to give it a winter look. The colors I used were a true white and SU's Boarding Blue. The owls themselves were cut using some cardstock from my stash.I stamped the images using SU's retired stamp set Bundle Up. I used whisper white craft ink but wasn't satisfied with the results so I used a white Gelly Roll pen to outline the Brrr and to draw over the snowflakes. Then after it dried I went over a few of the snowflakes with a Gelly Roll clear Star pen to add a bit of shimmer. Hope you've enjoyed today's card. If you've missed the last few days scroll down to see them all.

Blog Candy coming soon. Don't forget to stop by my blog next week. I'll be having an unadvertised giveaway for my loyal followers.  By unadvertised I mean that you won't read about it anywhere but here.
Remember to stop by tomorrow to see a day six. It's a masculine card.
