miss you

I thought it would be fun to make a fall card with Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates today - what do you think? I love the little owl sitting there on the branch. I used Copic markers again today (yes, I AM addicted) and I don't have many browns to work with, so my little owl is looking a little bit orange. It's all good though, he matches the tree - ha! I think what I'm loving the most about the Copics is the outlining color, C1 (Cool Gray) - it just makes the image pop from the paper a bit. The patterned paper is Autumn Vine and the brads are flocked - love the fuzz! The sentiment comes from Taggers Dozen. Seems to work right there under the branch.

I hope you are having a good week so far - see you soon!

recipe -
stamps: branching out, branching out coordinates, tagger's dozen (stampin' up!)
ink: memento rich cocoa, close to cocoa, copic markers
paper: close to cocoa, sage shadow, choice bright white (taylored expressions) cardstock, autumn vine dsp
accessories: sage shadow dotted grosgrain ribbon, crushed velvet brads (doodlebug design inc.), rectangle nestabilities (spellbinders), stampin' dimensionals
