Ms. Owl and Challenge #8 at ABNH

I'm playing along with the challenge #8 over at A Blog Named Hero this week. It's called Inspired by Hero Arts Artists.

My card below was inspired by Shari Carroll's card here.

This Hero Arts Big Eyes Owl stamp is one of my favs right now.  I can't tell you just how much I love it! :)  I stamped it twice on white paper and used Barn Door distress ink to color one owl red. Then I cut out the eyes, beak and feet from the other to paper piece on top of the red owl. I also used the Hero Arts Lattice Background stamp which is another fav right now! I decided to leave off the greeting and add it to the inside instead.  Oh, I added Glossy Accents to the center of the Ms. Owl's eyes to give them some sparkle. :) It's hard to tell in the photo, but the patterned strip toward the bottom of the card is actually washi tape. Isn't Ms. Owl cute?  :)
