What a Hoot!

This year for Christmas Cards for a swap group I participate in every year I made Santa Owl Cards. Over the years I've done everything traditional and wanted to make something different that nobody else would do. I tried to jazz him up a bit- with a glittery beak and by using velvet paper for his hat, wings and legs and a faux leather paper for the branch. I like him- he makes me grin. The inspiration for the card came from a lone, wrinkled old bar napkin, probably from the 70's I found when helping my Mom move. You never know where an idea will come from if you alway keep your eyes open.
