Owl Punch

I honestly never thought I'd venture into the "Owl" Revolution.  I thought I'd be one of the fun who resisted the urge to make a gazillion owls in all different forms and fashions.  Then, it hit me.  BAM!  One, I REALLY wanted to make a ghost owl for Halloween!  LOL  And two, this is one extremely versatile punch that can be used for all ages!  Considering I just gave my last kid themed stamp set to my SIL, Angie, I knew I had to find something quick!  I have a LOT of kid birthdays coming up!  ;)

Anyways, here it is!  My first "Owl" card.  Now granted, it's not really for a kid and there's no sentiment (which I purposely left off so it could really be any sort of card - love, birthday, miss you, thinking you, etc.) but it's cute & trendy!  I like it a lot!  ;)

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Real Red
DSP: Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake
Stamps: Hello Doily, En' Francias
Accessories: Owl Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch

Have a Fabu"OWL" day!
Julz ;)
