Early Bird

     Is this the cutest baby owl you've ever seen or not?  I fell in love the instant I saw it and, since it's from Limited Runs, it was perfect for an entry into their 3rd Facebook challenge.


     I combined two different images from Limited Runs, the mushrooms and the owl.  The little worm happens to be part of the image with the owl.  I printed the mushrooms, then colored them with my ProMarkers.  I hand cut that piece so that it was just slightly smaller than the card front and put brown CS behind it.

     Next, I printed and colored the owl and worm, also using my ProMarkers.  I fussy cut those pieces and added them to the mushroom piece. The owl is mounted on foam tape which gives some fabulous dimension to an otherwise very CAS design.  It also makes it look like the owl's pounce is imminent.  :-D

     Finally, I printed, hand cut and matted the sentiment, adding it to the upper corner of the card.  No ribbon, no bows, no flowers, no gems -- just a flat, simple card, easy to mail.

Leaving you with the encouragement from God's Word in 2 Timothy 2:10 which says, "For this reason I endure all things for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus and with it eternal glory."
