Wise Owl Card for Blog Hop. . .

For my first Papertrey Ink Blog Hop entry I made this simple Wise Owl half-window-fold card using Bazzill's scalloped cardstock and a tutorial I found here. I just love finding unusual folds/shapes for my cards on all the awesome blogs out there. I also incorporated the "innie/outie" nesting idea from Alli Miles' post here for my red circle on the front, but I actually used 3 Nesties. My card didn't turn out exactly as I'd seen it in my head, but I was a bit short on time today. I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with for this month's challenge!
Stamps: PTI's Wise Owl & Wise Owl Bellies
Paper: Bazzill & cream cardstock from stash
Ink: VersaFine's Vintage Sepia
Tools: Scor-It; Crop-a-Dile; Spellbinder's Wizard
Embellies: WeRMemoryKeepers' Large Eyelet; American Craft's Ribbon
