The Owls' Nest Party

When I start to make a card, I gather up all the challenge requirements  that I am going to try and put onto one card... I sometimes can't fit them all onto a card... but I sure do try... Well this time, I had about 15... and actually was able to get 11 onto the card.. and the card is so funny... I love it... Usually I do a pretty card.. this is not pretty... it is cute, funny and different for me...

Well what do you think???  Cute huh???

The orange background paper is some K and Company paper... and then I took a piece of paper and using a Tim Holtz Embossing folder, create the wooden textured tree... I used some Ranger inks to create the different colors to the wood...

I painted some white cardstock with my Twinkling H20's and then used me Cuttlebug leaf templates to make these pretty leaves... I used Distress Stickels on the leaves... what fun that was... I think I used about 10 different colors... I loe using them.. 

The Spider is a 3D sticker...??? Can't remember who made her...???

The Banner... Party at the nest!!! Don't you love it and the cutie peeking out of the tree..???  Well... that is only part of it...

On the where the party is... at the Nest!!!

The background paper was a gift from a friend... and then I stamped and painted the owls....

I bet you didn't know that Owls' are a wild bunch of birds!!!
They wait until we all go to sleep and then they get all dressed up in these wild feathers and Party all night long... in the dy time, they take off these wild looking feathers and look just like other birds... with normal looking feathers...  These are the fun ones...

I had so much fun making this fun card..
Hope you enjoy it...
