Owl on a Tree Trunk

Hello Friends
WOW! you guys I got a look at the Endeavour Shuttle this weekend and OMG! it was huge and what a historic view! Can you believe it passed by where I work!! 

OK, my friends so over the weekend we attend my nieces birthday party and this is the card I made for her.  She LOVESSSS owls and so what better punch to use for her card than the OWL BUILDER PUNCH by Stampin' UP! which you can purchase HERE!

Thank you for stopping by today and have a fantastic Monday!!

Challenge entered  Red Carppet Studio- birds
I used the "NEW" card stock Core' dinations available HERE from the Holiday Catalog.  I then dry embossed with the Woodgrain Folder and sanded the CS with Stampin' Up!'s new Stampin' sanding Block to bring out the exposed under color from the Early Esspresso Core' dinations Card stock 
I used a 4-1/4" X 5-1/2" white base which is kinda hard to see on this photo and the other layers are a 1/4" from the base size and Regal Rose card stock.  The border at the bottom is from the   Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and then die cut using the Large Scallop Edgelit Die which you can get them HERE!
I also used the new Whisper White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and the ribbon slides from the Holiday Catalog HERE
