I'm on the edge of glory, and I'm hanging on a moment of truth...I'm on the edge of glory, and I'm hanging on a moment with you...

Hey, y'all! Happy Sunday! How are ya? I promised more posts, and I have some for you this week! First I'd like to share a card I created using Sketch 220 from Card Positioning Systems.

I've had this BlockArt Owl Stampendous stamp for quite a while, and she was begging to be played with. I'd link you up, but it looks like she's retired now. Here's my card:

Isn't she cute? After I colored her, I realized she was a perfect match to this Echo Park paper. SCORE!

1. Stamp owl twice in black ink on white cardstock.
2. Color one flower and owl with markers, and background on the other.
3. Cut second image with shaped die cut and sponge with light brown ink.
4. Cut out flower and owl and adhere onto second image with foam dimensionals.
5. Add glitter to accent image.
6. Cut coordinating patterned paper and sponge around edges.
7. Adhere brown strip to bottom third of patterned paper.
8. Adhere green ribbon and bow across brown strip.
9. Mount patterned paper to A2 kraft card base.
10. Adhere main image to card using foam dimensionals.
11. Adhere flat-backed embellishments to top right side of image.

Here's a closer look:

Since the cardstock I used for the owl & flower was pretty thick, I colored the outside edges of each piece after I cut it out to make my card look more finished. I really like how it all turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today...have a fabulous Sunday!
