Owl card with Quick Quotes and Sizzix

Hello! I was recently commissioned to create an owl birthday card.  My neighbor came over and picked these papers for her friend's birthday card.  She loves purple.  I had fun making this one.  I must say I spent all morning cranking and cranking...I made a few of the pieces in different papers to find the accents that worked the best.

Here is the open view.  It was a bit of a challenge to cut down the head crest, so I came up with something similar.  I used a square label die and cut it to accommodate the shape of the owl head.  It is not as intricate but the white print adds something to it.


I thought the solid owl worked best with the inside print.
