St. Patrick's Day Owl

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! Did you remember to wear something green today? Mr. Owl did, and he's carrying his lucky clover, besides. He loves celebrating holidays!

I didn't have any designer paper in Garden Green, so I made my own. The pattern on the owl vest was created using the Dot, Dot, Dot Background Stamp. The plaid paper is Frostwood Lodge, which was printed using My Digital Studio.

I used my new Simply Scored Diagonal Plate for the first time today to make this coordinating envelope. Seriously, it took less than five minutes to make. Because the designer paper was printed from My Digital Studio, one side was printed and the other plain white. That makes for a very mailable envelope with a surprise inside!

Hi Sandy, How cute! Hope you had a happy St. Patrick's Day! How clever to use the MDS to make your own coordinating DSP. The envelope is a great idea, too!
