Owl Occasions thank you card by Stampin Up and me

Hi dear Stampers.
I know, I know, 2 cards in a day is probable a bit to over the top, but I really wanted to show it to you today. + I realised just in time this afternoon, that if I would wait until tomorrow with posting this card, I would be to late with adding it to the Friday Mashup Challenge # 83 - blog.
My inspiration for the layout came from the talented Amy. Please hop over to their blogs to see all those beautiful cards. I loved checking in with all of them.

The Colour Queen ladies provided me with this beautiful colour combo.
Their #162 Challenge was so much fun to work with.
As you can see I used the following Stampin Up colours to create this card.
Cherry Cobbler, Crumble Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper white and Summer Starfruit.

Dear Ann came up with that theme and I truly loved adding that theme to my card.

My 1-1/4 Inch Square Punch from Stampin Up was a huge help for this card.
Together with the 1-3/8 Inch Square Punch from Stampin Up, it was as easy as 1-2-3- to frame this cute little owl image!
Punches are a quick and easy way to add interest, dimension, and color to your cards, tags, and scrapbook pages. You can glue punched shapes directly onto your projects or layer a sheet of card stock that has been punched over a coordinating card stock for a reverse effect.

■ New, sleeker body style
■ Larger surface area offers precise cutting and leverage
■ Locks to store
