A Birthday Hoot - PP110

This week the Paper Players has a sketch challenge going on.  I decided to ink up my stamps and play along.  Here is what I started with:

I wanted to make a masculine card for a fall birthday.  I am not as fond of fall colors as I am of spring and summer, in fashion or in general, but changing up your normal favorites gives a little spice to life.  You may even end up making a new favorite!

Featured here are the new Woodgrain Embossing Folder and Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies available in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Also available is a nifty guide for poking an even outline of holes around each size of the collection.  My owl is sporting a tailored vest with silver "buttons".  Just perfect for my brother the professor.

Stamps:  French Foliage (120845[W]; 121166[C]), Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370[W]; 127802[C])
Ink:  Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive, Crumb Cake
Paper:  Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, More Mustard, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Accessories:  Mini Brads (122941), Dimensionals (104430), staple
