2 Cute...

I love this sentiment - just too cute!  I opted for a digi image from  2 Cute Ink and put 3 owls together in a row to print out.  They were colored with Copics and all the hearts were filled with Diamond Glaze for shine and depth.  The 2 papers were chosen to fit in with a masculine theme - the one right under the focal panel is wood grain.  After edging the panel with Distress Ink, I punched 1/16th inch holes on either side of each foot so that I could thread twine thru to look like the owls are sitting on a rope. (See the close up below.)
I added three square brads and a sentiment with a birthday tag hanging off it.
The inside is completed using left over papers.  I will add a sentiment there when I determine the recipient.

This is my inspiration card for the new Monday challenge # 155 at Craft Your Passion called "Make It Cute".  The Design Team over there has some fabulous examples to feed your creativity... you can see their work and enter your own creative efforts (HERE).  The deadline for your entry is Sunday, March 31 and the sponsor is 2 Cute Ink.  It is not necessary to sue a sponsor's image to enter.
