A leafy Yoo Hoo!

This was a definite challenge for me from CPS.  I don’t know why the angled center had given me such trouble, but once the idea came, I ran with it.  I also submitted it to the Hero Arts Blog challenge to distress.  The edges are inked to fulfill that requirement.  I’m thinking this might become a Father’s Day card or my father-in-law’s birthday card.  It has a nice masculine feel.


Here is another one of my owls from Hero Arts.  I like how this little guy peeks through the punched out hole from the center of the card.  He is a funky little owl, so cute.

Stamps: Hero Arts (owl, yoo hoo and branch), Oriental Trading Co. (leaf)
