Seven Days of Owls

Hello Everyone, Please forgive me for not posting lately. I came home from a wonderful vacation to a ton of laundry, housework, lawn and garden work, and then company here last weekend.
Today I'm starting a series I'm calling "Seven Days of Owls". My Niece has asked me to make a set of Owl themed cards to give her Mother-in-law. If Owls aren't your thing, hang in there. I think you like the card designs.
This is the first card I made. The cardstock is SU as is the designer paper. The Owl is a SU rub-on.  The eyelets are from Gina K. designs and the flower I cut with my Cricut using the George cartridge.
The card is an A2 card. The first layer was cut at 4 1/8 X 5 1/4. The two long blocks were cut at 3 3/4 X 1. The two shorter blocks were cut at 2 7/8 X 1 1/4. The center block was cut at 2 1/2 X 1 7/8.  The dimensions may change depending on your center piece. This size worked for me because of the size of the owl. I left a space for a sentiment along the bottom in case she wants one, if not I think it looks fine with out it.

At the end of this series I'll be offering some unadvertised blog candy just for my followers, so keep checking back.
Always, Jana
