Virginia's View #5


If you haven't been to visit Virginia's View Challenges yet, you are probably the last living blogger who has not ;-) Go, check it out now!
I have already entered a couple of cards because I am crazy about everything die cut ~ so much easier than fussy cutting images, no? 
Anywho, I made a thank you card for a dear friend for a birthday gift she gave me last week and just had to share.  The gift bag full of crafty goodness included this oh-too-darn-cute "Spring Tree Frame" die from Cottage Cutz..

Click on photo for more details

The owl is a sticker (a page of 'em in the gift bag) which is embellished with googlie eyes and sitting on a swing I made with a cork seat attached to the tree limb with embroidery floss.  
The note tacked to the tree trunk with a tiny brad is the smallest "Scalloped Square" from Spellbinders Nestabilities (yep, in the gift bag).  Thanks for peeking in on my blog...
And a huge thanks to Virginia for hosting these FABULOUS challenges :-)
