Owl Card

On my seeming never ending quest to do a few cards that would be okay for men I decided to drag this little owl stamp out of the drawer for this card. He's so sweet though i really can't think why I've not used him before.

I sat him on a swirl stamp and inked the background using ink dusters and distress inks, I was struggling with what to use for an embellishment until i remember this lead die and found a tiny little acorn in amongst my buttons.

I am entering this cards for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge #85.
