Owl are you?

I made this card for a challenge. It had to have a bird on it.
I used the Martha Stewart Christmas custom stamp set for the greeting. I didn't pay full price (40% off) but I wish I had gotten it cheaper. It's very hard to stamp with and not get ink from anything besides the actual letters. They really should've been made deeper. You have to be very careful to only tap ink on the letters and not get it on the edges of the stamp pieces or the acrylic base. The best way would be to color the letters with stamp markers if you have them. It doesn't come out heavy enough to show up well on patterned paper. I will have to try my versamark pad next. Maybe I can do it if I tap light enough that I hit just the letters.
