Pinched Idea

I saw a card in the November issue of Craft Stamper that was done on black card with a silver scalloped circle and a circle of written paper in the middle and it looked really effective. On the one in the magazine they had a little stamped house on the bottom right hand corner and also the card was cut away on the right side with a scalloped edge and doodled on in silver pen. I really liked the way it looked so I thought I'd make my own version using my owl stamp instead of the house. Also because I used a DL card I couldn't do the cut away edge but I think that makes it more mine if you know what I mean?I made the scalloped and plain circles with my nestibilites in my Cuttlebug, I can't remember who the owl is by but it's stamped onto the same paper as the Happy Birthday stamp and then coloured with Distress Inks. I just love that little owl stamp. I couldn't resist him when I saw him. I thought this would make a good card for a man - they are so difficult to make for aren't they?!

This is the card in the Craft Stamper magazine that I pinched the idea from.
