Owl Cherish Our Friendship: The Card Concept

Hi and welcome! The Card Concept has a new challenge for you:
 'Owl Cherish Our Friendship'.

How was I inspired? The square shape of the pillows, fabric patterns, and of course,
those darling owls! 
I needed a card for a friend who announced her pregnancy recently, 
and chose the whimsical owl from Papertrey's Polka Dot Parade #11.

I love the term 'glowing' for an expectant mother, and created the word with 
Concord & 9th's Perfectly Penned stamp set, which has the script letters
 to create the word.
Gave my mom to be owl a sprinkle of glitter to 'show the glow'.

Then I went over the word with silver Wink of Stella.

Stitched squares: Lawn Fawn's Scallop Box Card Pop-Ups.
Background PTI's Polka Dot stencil & Aqua Mist Ink.

The Challenge runs for 2 weeks, plenty of time to play!
We love seeing which of the styles you use to create your card.
My card style? Layers, lots of them. And a bit of Mixed Media too.
Our styles are explained here:
Oh yes, you can use one of our style suggestions, combine a couple, or use one of your own!

Happy Creating!
