I cut out a few of the owls from the pattern paper to use on this card. I adhered them with pop dots to a journaling sprout. Then I made little notches in the sides of the journaling sprout, and tied some twine around it. I thought it gave them the look of being perched up on a branch.
You Color My World by Laura Vegas
Patterned Paper: Soup Staples on White (red sugar, orange sugar, yellow sugar, olive sugar, light blue sugar)
Journaling Sprouts: Black Square on White
Alphabeans: Really Red
Other: tag, brad (Making Memories), binder clip (office supply), pen (American Crafts)
I love the colors that the new soup staples papers come in. When they're all piled together on my desk, they remind me of a rainbow. So I used that idea for this card. I just cut some 1 inch strips of the basic rainbow colors and adhered them all lined up on my card.
