The Card that changed....

Hi Folks.

Well the title says it all. This card has been many different things in the last few hours. It was initially a monochrome one. Then I decided on a masculine one (Think it could still pass as that) Then it was going to be very CAS, then on kraft card, now its got lots of bright layers. Im happy with where it ended up.  I just went with my creative flow.

 The card is for Lindsey's Design Team. You can see all her other Designers Makes HERE. Lindsays Etsy Store is HERE and this sweet Oswald Owl Digi Stamp is HERE.
Downloadable Digital Image - "Oswald"
My photo is a bit less sharp than usual. Ive moved the living room round and the Ottlites died so I think its a combo of not daylight light and the different shadows that I will need to get used to.
