Great Impressions: Owl-ways Friends!

Hi, friends!  It's Monday, and that means it's time for me to share some inspiration using stamps from the Great Impressions online store!  I made a fun card with a friendship theme for you today...check it out...

This card uses two *NEW* stamps.  The image is H282 Loveable Owl.  I stamped the image, did some watercoloring, wasn't fond of the way the owl turned out, so fixed that with some paper piecing and dimensional foam--I think he turned out TOTALLY darling!  I added some flower shaped sequins and Liquid Pearls to the centers of the flowers for added shine and dimension.  Some yellow enamel dots helped pull more brightness and yellow onto the card, as well.

The sentiment, E888 Owl Be Your Friend, is absolutely PERFECT for this image!  I stamped it in a bright blue color to match the eyes of the owl.  Isn't this font fabulous?!

I added some faux stitching to my focal panel, then added it to a kraft card base prepped with some fun floral patterned paper.  I think this turned out super cute, and I hope you agree!  I'd love for you to leave me a comment below to let me know your thoughts!

That's all for me today, friends.  THANK YOU so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card!  I also would love for you to come and join our monthly challenge!  If you use a stamp from the Great Impressions online store, please link it up in our Customer Gallery, too!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

O, my, wonder what the problem was, but hopefully it's been sorted out now and I will be informed of all your posts, again!!!! (If I don't comment on a post, know that I did not get the notification!!!)
So I have really spend a lot of time with you now, enjoying all of your lovely cards you've posted since I visited the last time, and that was a lot!!! And how have I enjoyed the feast for the eye you've got in every post!!! You have such a great way of working with lovely colour combinations and working with great stamp sets and dies!!!
