Snowy Owl

I just love Winter Birds! Wanted to get some more use from this lovely set. Someone very special to me will be receiving this card so watch your mail box!!!
The background papers used are from BasicGrey Granola. I used Cuttlebug Snowflake and small dots to emboss the papers. Base of the card is Chocolate Chip. Kraft cardstock is from Hollo's paper store. Snowflakes are from Spellbinders. I wanted to cut some using acetate. I had a tough time getting that to work. I used an extra cardstock shim, but it still wasn't cutting all the way through it. Had to resort to my craft knife to get the image out. I'll have to play around with it some more. I'm sure there is a way to get the die to cut cleanly through the acetate. The top two snowflakes got dipped in diamond dust. Owl was stamped using Walnut Distress ink from Ranger, then was colored in using white watercolor crayon. Used the aqua painter to soften the white.
Okay I'm off to bed. It's 2 am and I'm tired. This will be the last night I can stay up late. Have to go back to work on Monday JOY!!!!!!!
