Have a Hoot this Holiday

Hi! This week at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges we have a Christmas Critter card challenge.  I used a Oak Pond Creations digital stamp for my card.  The owl's name is Otis the Elf.  Oak Pond is our sponsor this week and they have a great selection of digital stamps and a wonderful prize for one lucky winner.

I coloured Otis with my Copics then layered him on a selection of blue, white  and silver papers from my stash. Along with Otis I used the following products to make my card:

  • Tim Holtz Christmas Tree die
  • Spellbinder Snow Flake dies
  • Bling from my stash
  • Sentiment - which I typed

I found the sentiment I used on a blog called Barb's World of Whimcees.  She has a list of different owl says for all occasions of card.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
