Lawn Fawn Winter Owl

I have a Lawn Fawn card to share with you, our featured card maker on the Operation Write Home blog today is Kelly Marie Alvarez the owner of Lawn Fawn and this week's OWH birthday celebration sponsor.  

I thought it would be fun to have a Lawn Fawn card on my blog today in honor of Kelly and Operation Write Home's birthday.  I'm really enjoying making cards for Operation Write Home with these cute stamps.

I colored my Winter Owl with Copic markers:

E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, Y35, BG11, BG23, BG34

A quick simple image to color and I chose a simple layout using Nut Brown as my card base, Kraft put through an embossing folder, Dark Aqua for the band of color and one of my Cheery Lynn Designs French Flair dies.  This cute clear set has a sentiment and hearts in it that I didn't use.  The sentiment says, "Owl I want for Christmas is You".  I just shipped a box of cards to OWH and I'm not sure when I'll have another box filled, I didn't want my card to be Christmas specific so I'll use the sentiment another time.
