A Brady Bunch Kind of Love

Come on, sing with me!  Here's the story, of a man named Brady...I know that song is going to be in your head for the rest of the day!  Ha ha.  Sorry about that, but just had to share.  You know the beginning of the Brady Bunch show where the dad and mom are looking at each other from a square box?  Well, when I first saw the new Stampin' Up! owl punch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  Owls in a tree. 
The base of the card is white.  I punched 2 holes with a 1 1/4" circle punch first.  The next layer is crumb cake.  I stamped the Woodgrain background stamp in Soft Suede ink, placed this layer onto the white base and lined it up to exactly where I wanted it.  Next I traced the two holes that I made in the white base onto the crumb cake layer and punched them out.  I put the two owls together using Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink (and dsp), Not Quite Navy (and dsp), Baja Breeze, black and white.  The ribbon was added and the owls glued into the inside so that they peeked through the holes.  Isn't this hilarious?  It could be used as an anniversary card or a Valentine's Day greeting, or I suppose whenever a lovey-dovey card is needed. 
Thanks for stopping by!
