A Cupcake Owl!

My card today is for Taylor's of Taylored Expressions Cupcake challenge. This week I am Taylor's Featured Cupcake Sampler .... how exciting is that!!!!!

I don't have any owl stamps that are cupcake related (I wanted to use an owl on my card for no other reason other than I like owls!) so I decided to use the owl & tiny cupcake stamps from Pink Cat Studio. This owl normally holds a balloon, so I stamped the owl omitting the balloon and then stamped 2 cupcakes onto scrap paper and cut them out and attached to my owl.

I used my square nestabilities to create all the layers to my squares and to add texture to my base card I used the swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder.

Stamps: Owl & Cupcake - Pink Cat Studio
Paper: White; Real Red, River Rock & Not Quite Navy - SU; DP - Basic Grey
Other: Black Ink; Square Nestabilities; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Red Brads; Red Grosgrain Ribbon; Foam Tape; Copics
