An other Wednesday Owl

Afternoon all.
The weather here is rather better today, not too hot and a pleasant breeze, although showers are forecast for about now. The clouds are thickening up but no wet stuff as yet.
I haven't played at Muse for a while but when I saw the inspiration by Marion Vagg I just had to play.
Those of you who have read last years early ramblings will know that about this time of year I make an owl inspired card for my Mum's next door neighbour. Mum is sadly no longer with us but Audrey is still following the Owls, Sheffield Wednesday FC (a soccer club in the Championship in England for my US followers). I was of the red and white persuassion (Sheffield United FC) but Audrey used to take me to see the matches when I was much, much younger, as she had season tickets at both clubs.
So without more ado here is this year's card.



The backing paper is from NitWits 'All Spaced Out' collection and the owl on a branch is from a free set in Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine - Oscar the Owl and friends and the greeting is from a Woodware set.
I had to extend the branch just like Marion and I doddled a border to complete the center panel. The owl was coloured using Copics then the panel was popped up on pads. The colours were dictated by Wednesday's team colours which are blue and white striped tops with black shorts.


This is Marion's muse card, so I've kept pretty close to the original for a very good reason!
OK, that's about it for today. Thanks for popping by and leave a comment if you can I love reading them and if time allows I hope to visit everyone in return.
