You are a Rare Bird Card

Update 9/14/17: I was so thrilled to see that my card was chosen as an Honorable Mention at Art Impressions' Off Kilter Challenge!  Thanks so much!

Hello cardmaking friends!  I originally was going to make this another teacher thank-you card, but at the last minute, I remembered this fun sentiment I have in my stash, and used it instead.

The owl was colored with alcohol markers and then trimmed out.  The woodgrain is a stamped panel I had in my scrap box.  I altered that with distress ink.  The rest of the card came together with the help of a sketch.  I am just starting to feel ready for fall crafting.  

I had really wanted to pop that owl up with one of those Action Wobbles, but I absolutely cannot find the little package of them!  I hope by posting this, that they will somehow magically show up. I have only truly lost one crafting item ever (it was a doily die) and everything else was just misplaced.  I think I accidentally threw out that die.  

Supplies: Art Impressions (with Hampton Art) Stamp and Die Fright Night set, Great Impressions Rare Bird sentiment stamp, Hero Arts Woodgrain background stamp, Memento and Versafine black inks, Distress ink Tea Dye, My Mind's Eye Darling Dear paper pad, Gina K Honey Mustard Cardstock, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies, Gina Marie X Stitched circles dies, other products from my stash.

I would love to play along in these challenges:

Congrats on your mention, this is just too adorable, love the wood grain behind, pretty autumn colors! Hope you find the wobble, there are a few things that I have lost in the midst of all my stuff, hoping it is still there somewhere, one of them is a penny black stamp :(
