Season of Friendship Owl Punch Birthday Card

Wow, I can't believe it's the end of July already. It always seems like summer flies by right after the 4th of July.

I am on a quest to find a fun card to make for our upcoming Show Box Swap. SO I am going to be posting them here and will narrow it down to one by August 7th. The swap is on the 8th and I need to prep for it so I only have a week to find the card I want to bring.

This is card #1. I had a LOT of fun making it. I did not design it but I did change it up a bit. It was made by Jenn from Stamp Your Heart Out. When I saw her card I thought it looked like it would be a great card for the swap. For the swap we are to use something new from the catalog. The "Season of Friendship" set is not new but the owl is. I actually took it out of the package just before I used it here. Can't get much newer than that! It's SO cute! I'm going to have to surf the net for more ideas to use it with. I know it will come in handy next June for graduation cards. I'm sure more samples will show up around that time.
I love it that I was able to use the three orange colors we now have too. Pumpkin Pie, Peach Parfait and Tangerine Tango. I could have added a bit of More Mustard but it was a bit too yellowy for these oranges. I like how these look. I hope it's not too early to show fall trees! All of the black walnuts are gone from our tree and the leaves started to fall from it over a week ago. Once that happens it's usually 6 more weeks and we get cool weather. That tree has been pretty accurate in the past. I wish it could tell me when it was going to snow!!! LOL
Ok, back to this cute card. Th owl is punched out of black and the other owl components are layered on. I punched a 1-1/4" circle for the moon and I added the "happy birthday" from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. Such a fun set!
So this card is in the running for the swap. It's fun but I'm glad it's a Show Box Swap because I wouldn't want to make a dozen of these myself!

Thank you for stopping by today,
