 I started with the Owl Tree image as my "flying" part of the challenge. The background in the image was so dark... it made me think of Halloween, so that's the direction I took. 

 I cut the owl out using a circle nestie and sized to fit behind the Circle Frame Die. I airbrushed a little W5 around the edge. I also colored all other leaves and branches with the W1... leaving the owl only white.

 The Owl and Sleepy Hollow are popped up with foam tape for dimension. I really tried to NOT put a bow on it... but I caved. It just looked naked with out a bit of ribbon! I ragged the black seam binding to fit more in to the Halloween theme. I added a little glossy accents to the owls for a little extra shine.

Here's the inside with the branches stamped down the side. And I snuck a little black cat in the mix... every Halloween card needs a little black kitty.

  6. What a PERFECT Halloween card for an adult. The monochromatic colour scheme and that intense owl is really great, and I love the way you finished the inside too.
