Owly Season's Greetings!

Hi guys and welcome to a brand new month ... wow November already ... you know what that means right .... not all that long till Christmas, yikes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My card today is for Beate's weekend sketch challenge .... now you all know I am an owl lover so of course I had to buy this stamp a while back and thought it was about time I actually used it LOL! I just love it!!!!!!!!!! I love Beate's sketch too of course.

I used my circle nestabilities to create my circle layers ... the top and bottom of the green card have been punched using the Martha Stewart Lace Doily Punch. I added red brads along the top and bottom edge of the designer paper.

Recipe:
Stamps: Owl (Greetings from the Wise) - Penny Black; Sentiment - Papertrey Ink
Paper: White; Real Red & Always Artichoke - SU; Wassail DP - Basic Grey
Other: Black Ink; Lace Doily Punch; Circle Nestabilities; Red Brads; Red Grosgrain Ribbon; Foam Tape; Copics

Great card. Such a cute little owl. I may just have to get him, too. Could you give me the sizes of the circle nesties that you used? I only have the large scallop circles and the classic plain circles. I seem to have difficulty in getting different sized layers that look good to me. I'm thinking maybe I need the other sizes of circles, too. Sure hope not since they are expensive and I'd hoped to make do with only the large set of each shape.
