Thank You Owl

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Charlene 'White Deer' Heathwood - thank you for joining me!  If you would like to leave a link to your blog in the comments, I will hop over and follow you too!

Today I'm sharing a thank-you card that I made with all dies, no stamping!  I gave this to my Dad yesterday and he loved it!


The woodgrain-embossed kraft cardstock background was inked with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.  I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's card shown below and on her blog here.  Her video was about creative uses for embossing folders.
