What's this?

I'm not sure how to define my card. It's not CAS nor embellished. It's not typically female, masculine or childish. It's not very autumn like, nor does it say spring, summer or winter. 

I don't know what this is, I just know I wanted to use my cute owl stamp from StampingBella. And I wanted to make a wooden frame. And I love my birch tree die from Memory Box. And I wanted to use that freebie paper and my favorite flowers at the moment. And I wanted to reduce my stash of small bits and pieces, hence my paper pieced owls.  

No sketch, no color inspiration, only the words of wings, flight and forest, which resulted in this card, made for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - Flight

2) Sparkles Forum Challenges - Things with Wings
3) Craft Room Challenge - Forest Friends

Love the frame - it looks fabulous and the owl stamp is really cute. It's great to make a card that doesn't fit into a category but would be received with delight by whoever got it.

Hi Pia
A delightful project to share .
It did feel to me to have an Autumn feel to it though . Love all the elements .
hugs Shirley-Anne

Darnell J Knauss said...

So if it has a wooden frame, then it's not a card, right? It's a wall hanging? I hope so, Pia, because it would look positively smashing on a wall! I love your eye for design and your impeccable sense of style and execution!! Hugs, Darnell
