Owl christmas cheer card

The little owl from Create A Critter 2 is the star of the Christmas card!  The Christmas ornament is also from CAC2.  Echo Park has a great collection called This & That Christmas and the plaid paper is from that line (I LOVE it!!!).  I always like to finish off the inside of a card as well as the outside, so there is a double mat with red and cream and a scrap of the plaid paper.  I also inked the edges of all the photo mats and the card edges with brown chalk ink because it really adds that little extra something.  The inside sentiment stamp is an older one from SU and the outside sentiment is from an Ali Edwards set.

CAC2-all cuts
Paper-Echo Park This and That Christmas plaid
solid paper-CM and CTMH
Stamp-SU for inside sentiment, Ali Edwards set Jingle All the Way for "christmas cheer"
brown chalk ink-Versamark jumbo java for the edges
sentiments stamped in SU Early Espresso and Close to Cocoa ink
button and twine from the stash

I'm going to link this to the fun SOUS challenge to use an owl on a project.  They have some great owl projects to look at!
