Dr. Owl

I made this card for the featured stamper challenge over on Split Coast - I was inspired by silli's  owl card

I needed to make a card for one of the doctors that I work for who's birthday is Monday. I used my SU owl punch and created a stethoscope (using the SU small and large oval punches) to hang around his neck. His vest is a teal blue - the color of our hospital logo.  I always try to think of a medical theme for the things I make for the doctors!
I made the tree by embossing a piece of brown card stock with the Sizzix woodgrain embossing folder and cutting it to the shape of a tree trunk. I punched a circle in the tree for the owl's nest.  I embossed the card base with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder from SU.  The leaf stem is an older Sizzix die. I used the SU Modern Label punch for the sentiment.

Here's what I stamped on the inside:

Stamps: It's Your Birthday -Woot Woot set Casual Fridays Stamps,  Have a Hoot of a day - Wise Owl set - Papertrey Ink
Paper: white, true black, fine linen, simply chartreuse - PTI, close to cocoa, Pacific Point , brushed silver- SU, brown Bazzill,
Ink: Ranger Distress Peeled Paint, Archival Coffee
Accessories: woodgrain emb folder - Sizzix, square lattice emb folder -SU, circle punch, modern label punch, owl punch - SU, leaf stem die - Sizzix, large and small oval punch - SU, 1/4" circle punch - Fiskars
