Owl Congratulations

Hi Everyone,  my card today is one I made for my GNephew, who did really well in his exams. I had this image as a freebie and decided to use it for his card, you know "wise owl".

Anyhow, this image for made for the Foil Quill in mind, so that is what I used.

I had the Cameo to draw the image with the gold foil and at the same time draw the congratulations sentiment too. Then, had the Silhouette pen to outline the foiled text. The Cameo cut the frame of the owl at the same time as the outer gold layer card. I copied the size of  the centre of the owls eyes and made a circle to add to the owls eyes out of the gold card. I added it to the red card flat, as it had to be posted. The black and gold paper is glued to the base card.

Foil Quill - large pen
gold mirror card - stash
red textured card - Dovecraft
paper background - Modern Deco - Dovecraft

I had to take the sunset on 21st August, I always like sunsets, they are so beautiful and as our bungalow faces West we are lucky to see them from our home over the mountain.
This was the first on I took

then the colour intensified and spread a little further, so a closeup was called for!

This is a gorgeous card, Faith! I love the color choices you made and the owl image is adorable!! I always associate owls with wisdom and education.
Your sunsets are beautiful!! My home faces the west too and I get some awesome sunsets. Our bedroom is on the east side, so we get wonderful sunrises too above the skyline. You have to take time to appreciate the beauty of nature!!

I adore your golden owl, Faith! My daughter collects owls - figurines, prints, photos, and of course, cards, since I make them for her. :-D I'll have to keep in mind doing owls in gold.
Gorgeous sunset photos!
