A friend sent me some cut die cuts from Anna Griffin and I had to give them a try for another masculine card I needed.
The branch was one I had cut from my cricut sometime ago and never used. The sentiment was a little too bright against this dark background so while the card stock was still in the die I sponged the center with some ink to darken it up a bit.
DCWV - Natural paper and mat stack
Anna Griffin - Avian Collection die cut (Owl)
Cricut - Branch

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend, we have some cold temps coming this week.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
A brilliant card, Connie, and the colors are fantastic.
PERFECT! I always forget about that sponging while in the die technique ... thanks for inspiring me (& reminding me lol). Having a great weekend ... hope you are too!
An outstanding masculine card, Connie! The owl is a very wise and dignified looking creature. A simple design, but with all the good stuff. I love it!
Such an awesome card. Love the gold paper against the black and grey. Loving the owl too. How nice that you should just happen to have a cut branch kicking around. This ones a winner.
How charming!Owls mean wisdom in mythology,I think this card is so cute...Hugs!

What a cool owl card! Love the brilliant gold behind him. It's like he's sitting in front of a giant polka dotted moon. ;0)
