woodgrain & animal stories

 get out of your box lately? I sure did here! what an odd color combination.... but i really do like it and in my looks oh so much better in person! This is what you call grabbing my base(elegant eggplant) and then just laying scraps next to it and deciding what looks good. Then you design! It's very bright and cheery i thought!
 i popped my 'wood' piece up on dimensionals so it looks like Mr. owl is actually in the tree;) easy distressing of the wood was just done by scratching my finger nail along the edge. More vigorously in some spots than others.
i forgot to take a picture until i had it sealed in the fun clear envelope to give to a dear friend. hence the not so clear pictures. I love this option for when you hand deliver a card that is so cute! you can buy them from SU! right by all the other envelopes!
