Happy Birthday Frances!!

Hoot! It's a Birthday Blog Hop Prettie Girl style... with a dash of owl-y goodness tossed in for fun! The amazingly talented Frances is celebrating a birthday today and the Prettie Girls just had to throw another virtual party! The hop started at Jacque's so if you didn't start from there you might be missing out on some of the fun! :) When you reach the end of the hop make sure and leave a little love for Frances wishing her a Happy Birthday! The next stop on the blog hop is Jackie R's blog..so be sure to go there next!!

Since Frances LOVES owls, we all decided to try to incorporate owls into our cards. I used my Flutterby image, which I stamped on Gina K. White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then paper pieced the dress with some Good Morning Sunshine DSP. The flower and pearls were colored in with my white gel pen. The rest of the image was colored in with my Copic markers. The sketch is from this past week's SCS sketch challenge. My cute little owl is from the My Favorite Things set, We're Not Scared...cute right? I did a TON of paper piercing and added lots of embellishments, all of which are from SU. The sentiment is from the Paper Pretties set, Bugs and Fishes. It was punched out with my word window punch. W

Well, that is it for me now. Be sure to head to Jackie's Blog for the next stop on the hop!!

  15. This is also so cute. I love all the piercing. I have never tried this but it looks fiddly! Could you do with a un threaded sewing machine?
