Celebrating World Animal Day with Sparkle N Sprinkle!

It’s World Animal Day! At Sparkle N Sprinkle we’re celebrating the animals in our lives, and the critters of this world by having a blog hop. Critters bring such joy, happiness and beauty to our world, and we’d like to recognize them for the contributions made to our hearts!
If you arrived here from Dawn Thomas's blog, you are in the right spot. But if you happened here by chance, have a look from the beginning. There are wonderful prizes to be had and lots of things on special!

My card today is made using the Bird Swirl Stamp Set 432. I stamped my branch and owl using dye inks, and my sentiment using a pigment ink. The sentiment was then embossed with Copper EP. After coloring the branch and leaves, I added Starfire Glitter with Brushable Glue. I added a feather for some interest.

Today is my last post as a Sparkle N Sprinkle designer. I want to publicly say what a wonderful company SNS is, and how generous their hearts are. I have loved working with Margaret and Donna and the rest of the team for the past year. Thank you for a delightful time!

Be sure to leave a comment here to be eligible for two grand prizes! Now hop on over to Julie Zippel for another wonderful critter! Thanks for stopping by today!
