Speedy Fox & Friends 128 - Ribbon, EF, & Punches

Happy Weekend everyone!  It's a beautiful fall weekend here, I hope you are enjoying a nice one too!    

 The Speedy Fox & Friends challenge this week is to use: 1 ribbon, 2 embossing folders and 3 punches or die cuts.  Come join the fun and load up your creation HERE

The other morning, I woke up with this card in my head.  I went straight to the computer and checked out my teamies blog posts to make sure that it was an original thought and not something that I had remembered seeing from the hop.  Woohoo....it wasn't done before so I went to work.  I used MFP a Heinrich Co. Autumn Splendor and stamped these cute little owls.  The next step was to emboss the Kraft with the woodgrain but then I remembered that our challenge is to use 2 EF's so I recalled a previous post on Pat's blog showing how to use 2 EF's.  You can see it here.  I punched out 2 circles, I used the fishtail flags die for the sentiments  and the butterfly punch so that made 3 dies or punches!  Now where to add the ribbon!!  I had to think about that a moment then I came up with the idea to add the ribbon to the lower owl and viola, I had my 1 ribbon, 2 embossing folders and 3 dies/punches.  TFL and have a GREAT weekend!

  1. Angela, this is a really cute card. I love how you used the two embossing folders on the one paper and added the sponging. It looks awesome. I also like the addition of the green butterflies along with adding the bow for the girl owl.
