Friend: a card

Hello friends! 
Can you believe it's August already!?! I really feel like this year flew by. The summer is almost over and kids are almost back in school! Talking about school, you should totally check out the new releases Sweet Nothing's Stamp Co. has to offer. There is one of the new images that would be perfect for a back to school themed project. Check out this month's new releases by clicking HERE.
Today I wanted to share with you a card I created using Tomboy Sophie and her cute owl friend. Yes! you heard right, an OWL! As soon as this image was released I had a vision and I tried to make it come to life, and this is what I came up with.
I got Sophie sitting inside a hole of a tree truck and her little owl friend sitting on the branches. I do't know about you, but since I was little I've always drawn holes in tree trucks, and well, I wanted to Sophie to sit in one and I made it happen lol.
I colored her and her friend with my Copic Markers, and added some banners on top of the card to go with the banner I made for her to hold. The paper collection I used for this card was the Hello Summer by Echo Park. Love the bright colors on it, just perfect for summer projects.
I embossed the woodgrain pattern by using Midnight Copper embossing powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang and a Hero Arts woodgrain background stamp. I also dry embossed the inside of the hole I made in the tree trunk with a woodgrain Texture Fade by Tim Holtz. I wanted woodgrain texture on both the inside and outside of the tree, but I wanted both textures to be different so the hole in the trunk would be noticeable.
 Simple layering of the designer paper on the inside of the card, along with a small banner I created using paper and twine, juts like the banner I created in front of the card.
Hope you enjoyed today's card share and thanks for stopping by!
