Spring or Winter?

Isn't this guy just adorable? I had the opportunity to go to a stamp festival in Riverside, CA last weekend. What fun!! This guy just called out to me in the *Stamps by Judith* booth. You see, Monday is the day I upload a challenge that a few SCSers and I put together each week. This week Cindy (Mothermark) challenged us to make a card based on what we thought the groundhog was going to predict...spring vs winter. Well, Hoots here was sooooo looking forward to spring that I just couldn't disappoint him. He's so excited about being popular this year. I mean Owls are everywhere, and he wanted to get his face out there...let everyone know he's the *who's who* of owls. If you'd like to see what season the others predicted, go HERE.

Here are the details:
This card is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". First I stamped Hoots and the sentiment on Papertrey White cs (my favorite for coloring with copics) with Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink. I think the dp's are SU, but I'm not sure which ones. I used my nestabilities to cut the circles, and the outside scallop was cut off by using a slightly smaller circle die cut. I feel it gives the circle a more masculine feel. I couldn't find my SU corner ticket punch, so I had to adapt. I just used the end of the SU tag punch to cut off the corners. A corner rounder was used for the sentiment. The edges are ink distressed with Ranger Walnut Distress Ink, and each panel is lifted with scotch dimensional tape. This card is for my dear friend Frances (StampOwl on SCS). Ya think she'll like the owl stamp? LOL
