TT102 'Critter Crazy' with Heart Song Designs

Good morning dear crafty people!

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for a brand new 'Tuesday Throwdown Challenge'. This week the team are being sponsored by 'Heart Song Designs' who are supporting us in our 'CRITTER CRAZY' theme!!

I have used the sweet little 'Owl on Branch' image on my card today.  I simply printed him twice onto cream cardstock, coloured and then cut out Mr Owl and popped him up using foam adhesive to give him a little dimension.

I used oval nestabilities to create a frame for him using some woodgrain effect patterned paper.  The background is created from panels of co-ordinating MME patterned paper and green cardstock and finished with some lovely dark brown twine and prima pearls.

I used a fabulous sketch for the layout of this card - it's SSS162 from the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog. I simply flipped the sketch on it's side. I love this sketch and can see myself using it over and over!

Click here to visit the Tuesday Throwdown blog and take a peek at what the other DT ladies have created for your inspiration - you won't be disappointed!  Hope you can join us - look forward to seeing you there!

Big Hugs,

Thanks for the comment on my Guest Designer Animal themed Kitty Get Well Card. I like your Owl on branch. My daughter likes Owls. Wished that I had been given the Owl image as well to use, perhaps I could have made a card for my daughter with it. Also, I cked the Tuesday Throwdown site and do not see the blog post for today 6/12 as of 6:25am CT.
