Owls in a Gloriously Colourful Tree!

It's a little strange to be making 'autumn' inspired cards when we are just coming into summer here in the Southern Hemisphere, but I do love these fall colours so it was a pleasure to make!

When I was a teenager I couldn't get enough of BLUE - it was my favourite colour for a long time and I couldn't stand the sight of green (probably because it was my mother's favourite colour then hehehe - rebelious teenager!) but nowdays give me red, greens and oranges any day [and browns too] and I'm a very happy girl!

Apparently my great-grandmother adored orange, we have her embroidery floss tin and it is brimming full of so many tones of oranges - maybe that's where I get it from....

So for todays' card I went a bit mad on cutting out leaves - still have some spares on my table - and decided to make a little woodland scene, with a pair of cute owls to top it off.  {The card almost blends in with the background!}

It sort of fits in with a couple of challenges over at 365 cards [ I'm falling behind!] which are Peek-a-boo (one owl peeking out from behind the other one and Festive Fall With a Little Fringe where I feel the leaves have created an interesting fringe above the owls!

What I used:

Card:  snippets of SU Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red,So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive for the leaves, Very Vanilla for the owls and Cajun Craze for the branch - background card unknown.

Stamps:  Lots of Tags [retired], Punch Bunch [retired], Vintage Labels [retired]
