You're a Hoot - Treasure Hunt

Tomorrow I have something really special happening on my blog (you won't want to miss it!) so I'm posting my TREASURE HUNT creation today.

I actually found two treasures that I used on today's card...

Non-Skid Tub Appliques (cost 5 cents)

Wallpaper Border (cost 10 cents)

And here's the card I made:

I had a bit of a challenge coloring the tub applique, but I was determined to do so, since I didn't think an owl should be pink. I tried a couple of different ink pads first. That didn't work. Then I tried some cheap (not my Copics) alcohol markers. That didn't work either. Finally I used some acrylic paint and it worked!!!

I think this card is a hoot!

Sentiment: CC Designs A Hootin' Good Time
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Creamy Caramel, Handsome Hunter, and So Saffron
Designer Paper: Kaiser Craft What a Hoot and a piece of wallpaper border
Embellishments: Non-Skid Tub Applique, Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint, and two Recollections Tiny Brads
