Card from a kit - a fun owl with sequins and a vellum greeting

This card kit was prepared for this class in May.   I discarded the raffia and added a small piece of ribbon instead.  The background was sanded to reveal the white core and it was mounted to a dark green card.  I watercoloured the little owl (laser printed digital stamp from Cre8tive hands), distressed its edges and then embellished them with brown watercolour.  I mounted it to over the frame in the background using 3D foam tape.  Without the raffia it was needed just a bit of something so I added a bit of ribbon in the lower right hand corner that coordinated with the card colour and that was better.  Still needs something so I dug out the sequins and found a few that coordinated so I added four of those using glue dots.  Afterwards, I decided I wanted a greeting so found this one printed on vellum which worked so I removed the copper sequin, added the greeting and replaced the sequin with a small cooper brads which worked just fine!  Pretty happy with how this one turned out!!          Therese
