Card- you're too kind

Hey everyone! I want to Thank everybody for the sweet comments and congrats about the good news! It is so nice to have ya'll cheering me on! Ya'll are too sweet! :) Well, football games and cheerleading starts on Saturday. Chace has 2 games to play in and Autumn has to games to cheer at! We will be at a town about an hour away and we will be there from 10:30 a.m. until about 6:00 p.m. It is going to be a very Looooong day! Then school starts back on Monday. Wow, this Summer went by really fast! I always miss my kids when they go back to school! :(
Ok, on to the card. Here is a card I made a few day ago, I bought some satin blanket binding at Walmart and I cut it in half, and it made pretty good ribbon. I really like the width of the ribbon, but it does fray! I also bought this cute stamp from Michael's, I really love little owls and I think they look so cute on branches! :) Well, here it is!
Supplies:
Paper- My Mind's Eye, white, kraft, green cardstock
Stamp- Recollections- owl stamp, PTI- mega mixed messages, All Night Media- wood grain
Ink- ColorBox Chalk Ink- chestnut roan
Accessories- Wright's- Pink satin blanket binding, brown marker, EK Success- corner rounder, hand drawn and cut branch and leaves

Have a Blessed day!
