Mr cute owl again in nest :)

I highly recommend Kim Hughes stamps :) I have 4 sets now and they ink up perfectly, I just love her style :)
This is "twink" the owl in a nest which I paper pieced. The background paper is Scenic route.
I embossed a border with houndstooth cuttlebug folder on kraft card and used my new ribbon tags from Spellbinders and ribbon is from Papertrey.
I couldn't find the ribbon tags in UK and I finally found them in Zee's ebay shop {click on Zee and it will take you to her blog and you can get to her ebay shop via that, postage is very reasonable.
Enjoy your evening :)
