Kiwi Lane Owl Card

Today's card uses another one of my Judikins Mica Gloss back grounds.  It is fall colors on a black glossy card stock...I thought it would look good as the owl's body.  But I wanted something to perk it up and I ran across a package of sequins I purchased a month or so ago...I had never used sequins.  First I used them in place of brads on yesterday's card and on this card, I spent a bit more time layering different colors for the owls belly.  I don't think you can tell at all the time I spent glueing those suckers down in a pattern!

I used paper for the nose and lace for the eye "lashes". The owl, tree branch, moon and tag are all cut with Kiwi Lane templates.  I embossed the background with a Sizzix starry embossing folder.  I don't think the pictures do this card justice.  The moon is an old Creative Memories gold paper and is very reflective as were the sequins, paired with the dark brown old and background paper, the camera just didn't get the colors well.

Another teaser...can't wait to show you my Kiwi Lane DT post this month!
