Out on a Limb

Another owl card using Lisa Lara's latest digi ... Hoot Hoots.  Love this set!!  This card is a lot more CAS than yesterday's pop-up card.  I used MTF "Sheltering Tree" die for the branch and Memory Box "Tender Leaves" (which I've had a while, but hadn't used yet ... I have several of those!).

This card is for Clear Dollar Stamps Challenge #57 - Things with Wings.  Fun, easy and quick card.  Hope you like.

"Out on a Limb"

Stamps:  Hoot Hoots Digi (Lisa's Doodley Doos - Clear Dollar Stamps); On a Limb sentiment (Stampendous)
Paper:  White, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi (SU!)
Ink:  Chocolate Chip (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Computer (digi owl stamp - colored), Big Shot, Sheltering Tree die (My Favorite Things), Tender Leaves die (Memory Box), glue and dimensionals

Printed the owl and cut him out.

Die-cut the tree and four sets of leaves.  Trimmed off the branch where the owl will sit and added leaves to the other branches using glue.

Stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink.  Added the tree branch with leaves to my card base, popping it up with dimensionals.

Mounted the owl on the branch, also popped up with dimensionals.

Quick and easy card!

One other quick thing, my lilies are in full bloom and I wanted to share a picture before cutting them for a bouquet.  Lilies are my favorite flowers ... and I especially love Stargazers - such a beautiful color and the fragrance is unbelievable.  The white lilies are Casablanca and are also very fragrant.

This is gorgeous, Loll! The image is perfect for the sentiment, and that owl is so cute.

LOL! Totally pinned that adorable owl card!! And your lilies are extraordinary! I've never actually seen them GROWING before; they are always cut and in arrangements when I've seen them. It must be awesome!!

Another cute owl! He looks very smart on the tree. Your lilies are beautiful. I love lilies too. My favorites are the old fashioned double day lilies. I was fortunate to find some at our previous home. When we moved, I dug a few up and brought them to our new home. We were delighted when they bloomed this year.

OMG Loll.....Adorable, adorable, adorable CAS owl out on a limb card. Gorgeous lilies too. We have....60-70 too many to count day lilies in our different gardens. Beautiful for a day and do not have the wonderful smell of the ornamental lilies. Tried the ornamentals, but the deer and moles liked them way too much. TFS your card and flowers
