CAS Owl Good Luck Card for Hubby

Monday's CAS57 challenge on Splitcoast Stampers was to layer two different shapes on a card while still keeping it CAS. I've used Nestie circle and Labels One dies for my two different shapes.

I coloured the owl with Copic markers and cut him out. I stamped a woodgrain stamp on the circle but when I placed the owl over the top he didn't look quite right, he needed anchoring. So I went out into the garden to find a tiny twig for him to stand on. After gluing on the twig, I popped up the owl with foam pads and added a few punched leaf shapes.

My hubby Owen has a job interview on Wednesday so I gave him this card to wish him the very best of luck. Keep your fingers crossed for him please!

So many great details on this fab card, like the woodgrain and the real branch.
