This is the What a Hoot stamp set:
 

Isn't it adorable! 

I wanted to share a Halloween idea but I restricted myself to using the new Wanderful paper pack through August- which is more travel themed.  This is what I came up with:

I used a patterned piece from Wanderful along with the new Flaxen cardstock that comes in that paper pack.  I stamped in Black and sponged with Sunset and Gypsy.  Eyes stamped in Gypsy.
 
I used the new woodgrain embossing folder to make the "tree".  I rolled some cardstock into a sort of branch for my wl to perch on.  I found  a scrap of olive cardstock and cut the leaves with Art Philosophy.  I also cut the sentiment piece with that cartridge.
 
This card is one of my August card class projects- check back later this week to see the rest.
 
Now head on over to Lalia's blog to see what she's created!

The woodgrain embossing goes so well with this Owl image. I like the paper you chose, your card turned out great
