Owl Thank You Tent Card For Jan

Another tent card but an A6 sized oblong one this time.  This card is for my sweet friend Jan to thank her for a gift and her ongoing kindness.

The base is made with Old Olive CS and I used papers from the Sweet Pea stack.  The branch and owl are one solid image on the stamp - I stamped once in Old Olive and again in Chocolate Chip.  I cut out the Choc Chip owl and have popped him up.  As the branch is a bit spindly, I was a tad concerned about it bearing the weight of the owl.  So I stamped another branch, cut it out and attached it to the back to add some strength. Circle Nesties were used again to make the aperture and frame.  I added some photo corners, Old Olive ribbon and a gorgeous Sweet Pea felt bloom.  I used yellow gems for the owl eyes and added pink gems to the corners.

This photo shows the back of the tent card.  I used various stamps from the fabby Elzybells 'Thank You For' set for the sentiment element.  I love that there are various words in the set that you can put together to build your sentiment.  I finished off with an olive felt flower with a pink crystal brad.
