A Little Bird...

This card is made for a child (or someone who is a kid at heart) and, of course, has an owl on it! My friend gave me this stamp because she knows how much I love those cute little whimsical owls! The outside says, 'a little bird told me...' and the inside says, 'it's your birthday!'  I am entering this card in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge for this week.  The challenge called for a card made for a child.
The background paper is from The Paper Studio, the sentiment from Chatter Box and the owl is from Stampendous.

Card Chain Challenge

For a year now, I've been participating in Deborah Nolan's Card Chain Challenge.  This is a monthly challenge, where Deb gives us a theme, a sketch and color palette to work with in order to make one card.  After signing up to participate, she sends an email with the address of the person you will send a card to. The best part is, in response, you get a card in the mail from someone else on the list! I love participating in this because I've received cards from ladies all over the world...and who doesn't appreciate getting a handmade card in the mail? 

On the first of each month, Deb always has a reveal on her blog.  Today, the reveal took place on a new challenge website called Lily Pad Cards.  The challenge has really grown this card (sent to Jan in sunny California) can been seen near the bottom of her reveal or is also pictured below.  I am still waiting for my card for March to arrive...but it's coming all the way from Ireland! 

The owl stamp and punch are by Stampin' Up and the sentiment is from Hero Arts (CL129). Patterned paper is from the Paper Studio.
