Wishing I Could Be There...

Our daughter had a birthday recently -- her first as a married lady.  :)  She lives 8 hours away so we had to wish her a happy birthday from a distance.  She really likes owls and I got this Simon Says Stamp owl set a long time ago to make cards for her.  I can't find it on the website now, so I'm guessing it's retired.  I saw this sentiment Banner Stamps clear stamp set recently on the SSS site and thought it would be perfect for either of our children's birthdays {they both live 8 hours from us and 8 hours from each other :( }

The owl and tree branch were colored with copics and then fussy cut.  The owl is popped up on the branch.  A white gel pen accents the eyes and there's some shimmer thanks to a Wink of Stella glitter marker.  The card is 4.25" square.  I kept to the woodsy theme by using a tree patterned paper, kraft cardstock, some jute twine and a natural colored button.

Cardstock:  Recollections, Georgia Pacific
Patterned paper:  scraps from my stash
Ink:  Memento
Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp clear stamps (Banner Greetings, Owls (retired))
Tools/Embellishments: Signo white gel pen, Wink of Stella glitter marker (clear), Staedtler fine tip marker (brown), Fiskars Border punch (Apron Lace), La Mode button, jute twine
