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!

Love the owl and the copper embossing on the sentiment, very pretty! Sorry I won't get to work with you though.

Lovely. It is interesting to see just two corners rounded. That gives a completely new look.

Mary said...

Love your choice of colors -- the blue and copper are gorgeous together.

Pat K said...

Your owl is so sweet, thanks for sharing such a cute card!

Kathy Vogel said...

I especially like the embossing folder background. The shape of the rectangle the owl is resting on is intriguing. I've never tried just rounding two of the corners

Great card (and sorry to see you go). I love the colors and the images, but the pop is the feather. What is a bird without feathers.

I like the texture on your card.

The starlight glitter blends nicely with the pumpkin CS. The feather adds just the right dimension for a finishing touch.
