A Lovely Snowflake Owl with Sweet Pea Stamps

Today I'd like to share with you all a card i've created using the beautiful 'Snowflake Owl' image by Charmaine Flannery available over at Sweet Pea Stamps;

I thought this image would make a lovely birthday card for someone with a winter birthday, but you could use this image for any occasion.  I had so much fun colouring her with my Letraset Promarkers, and white gel pen.

For my card, I took a 5" x 7" card blank and adhered two round doilies to it, before trimming the doilies in line with the cards edges.  I then took 3 different washi tapes from my stash, a plain cerise, purple checks along with a purple and grey striped .  I tore strips from each of these tapes and added them over my doilies to create my background.  I then stapled my coloured image in place.

To embellish my card I added a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket for my sentiment, along with cerise gems of various sizes and a cerise wooden heart button.

I love combining paper doilies with washi tape to give both a traditional and funky feel to my card backgrounds, I hope you like the combination as much as I do.

That's all from me for today, don't forget to visit the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog to check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of our very talented design team.

Thank you for visiting with me,
Bye for now
