Owl Always Love You

So this week I am the featured DT Member for the Just A Scrappin' team and as part of my feature I was asked to create a card to go along with the Q&A.  Now when I thought up (boy does that sound "Southern" lol) this card I had a much grander vision of the way it would turn out and, I guess, in the end, it's not too bad.  Although I was hoping that at the very least my appeture would work a bit better. 

Appeture Close Up

Anyhoo.....I used Create a Critter for my owl, April Showers for the butterfly, and Sweethearts for my tree.  When I laid the tree cut out on the mat though I stretched it just a bit so that my tree trunk would be a little bit wider for creating the appeture.  Once removed from the mat, I used my exacto blade to make a cross cut then grab each corner with a pair of surgical grips and rolled the paper back to create my opening.

On the inside of the card I adhered my owl so that its face fit center to the opening on the front.

Now, if you'd like to see the questions that were asked of me and delve a little bit more into what helps to keep me 'sane' take a gander over at the DT member feature on Just A Scrappin'.

This is a really cute card! I love how you made the opening on the tree truck to showcase this cute owl's eyes! Love it!
