A Day for Owls

Hello Readers,

For today I will be playing along with Creative with Stamps and A Day for Daisies. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Adding a wood texture really adds to the autumnal feel of the card.
The blue night sky was done using alcohol markers and lots of blending.
The sentiment is the only white element on this card. I think it pops beautifully against the A Day For Daisies owl and (free) pumpkin digi!!
There is something about ADFD that always keeps me coming back.
This card is actually a one layer card. Masking and digital
designing creates a visual multidimensional card.
Challenges Entered:
Creative with Stamps: CWS Challenge #6- Photo Inspiration
A Day For Daisies: #154- Add Some Wood


This card signifies how 'grateful' I am that as of today at 10:21am EST it is officially Fall. I am going to welcome the colder weather; cozy sweaters and socks, blue jeans, wool scarves, and that little nip on your nose from the first frost. But most of all, I am looking forward to Nature's colorful splendor of Fall. The colors that Fall provides is, in my opinion, the best show on Earth. 

I know we all lead hectic lives so I would like to thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the internet. We will see you soon! Until then, take care and happy stamping!!

All the best,

You rocked this, Shawna! I love your use of BOTH ADFD images. That owl looks so great with the freebie! I don't think I would have though to combine them. . . genius. Love, love,love your night sky and use of the wood paper in the background. So glad you are in love with ADFD images, me too!! Thanks for playing along with our September challenge at ADFD. Good luck! Hugs, Cathy
