Halloween Owl Easel card

I'm sharing today a card I made for my mother-in-law.  She is a HUGE fan of owls and I wanted to make her a card for Halloween, especially this year because it is the 1st Halloween since her husband passed away.  I really just wanted to let her know that we are thinking of her, even on a silly day such as Halloween. 

I am also entering this card in a couple of challenges:

I used these items to created this card:
  • Design Studio
  • Create-a-Critter Cricut cartridge
  • Cuttlebug
  • Swiss dots embossing folder - used on the outer layer of the owl
  • Script texture embossing folder - used on the tree limb
  • Stickles - black and purple on the owl
  • Circle stencil - used to hand cut out the moon
  • E-Z Rub On - for the bats on the moon
  • Black, orange, 2 types of purple, white cardstock
  • Pattern Paper - from Recollections Midnight Magic

The inside I used these items:
  • white cardstock
  • black brads
  • Martha Stewart corner punch
  • misc. Halloween stamps
Thank you so much for looking!
