Birthday Owl...With A Cherry On Top!

This is a birthday card for my older brother, Brian. He is a die-hard outdoorsman and I usually make some kind of scene with deer, etc. However, I was in a silly mood, so this is what I ended up with!

This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is one of my all-time-favorite-artists!!! And I do mean "artist"'s Birgit aka Biggan!!! Her unique and creative style is like no other I've seen....check out her gallery HERE. I chose this awesome card to case. Also, the OCC Color Challenge this week was to use Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin, and white. (Hope the cherry doesn't disqualify me! Wink!) The owl I used is from the Stampin' Up set, "Good-goody Gum-drops", which I have had for a year and not used yet! The owlie and cherry were painted with Smooch Pearlized paints. The designer paper is Basic Grey "Indian Summer". For the finishing touch, I added some suede strips which I sponged with Chocolate Chip ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Hope your Sunday is restful (and full of football! Go Colts!!!) God Bless!!
