Baby Aviary!

Whoo Hoo Happy Long Weekend in Canada People!

Well this is the Victoria Day Weekend and for those of us who live in Canada it's a three day weekend.  Yay!  Some of the parks open this weekend but fortunately  unfortunately for me it's not Big Falls!

I have been up in the craft room today tiding up and playing with my new rubbah!  I had a bit of fun with the new Aviary set.

I am officially in love with the owl in this set.  He is so freaking adorable.  I went to my cut card stock and looked at the colors and since I haven't used Tempting Turquoise in awhile, I thought, why not?

Pairing it with Lucky Limeade was a no brainer.  Which is good cause right now I have a no brain- er.

Here you go -

I embossed the cage in silver and masked off the cage so I could add the stand.  (the stamp has a long stick and I needed a short one)  After I had the cage done I stamped the owl in Tempting Turquoise.  Because the cage is embossed it looks like the owl is in the cage.  Love that!

I used markers and the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set for the flowing flowers.  Same colors!  I cut out a couple of flowers and added them to the places where the flowers were a little skimpy due to me not stamping in the right place. But as I say - there are no mistakes, only opportunity for embellishments!

I put the cages on a large block and stamped them up one side of the card in Turquoise.  I added a little greeting and glued it to the side of the focal image.  I also added some mini pearls and as you can see, ribbon. 

Is this not cute?  I ask you how can you not smile at his silly face?

Ok that's it for today, once again it is time to go! 

Owlish hugs!
