Happiness Is...

Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by!  I have a little change of pace today -a whimsical card inspired by this adorable owl that has been recycled from a old greeting card - how cute is it - and those eyelashes - gorgeous!

The patterned paper is from Kaisercraft, it was 'lurking' in my stash and I am so glad it has seen the light of day!  It has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine and adhered to a slightly larger Kraft card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.E

The centre panel is from Authentique Paper and adhered to the centre of the card front also using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra The Owl has been popped up using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The partial pink die cut frame is from an older die by Seth Apter - and still a favourite with me.  The beautiful cluster of flowers is from Little Birdie Crafts and has been glued to the top right hand corner.  Nice and Easy to make, but adorable all the same - in my opinion anyway! Wink:wink! The Owl has been poppee
