Pile it On # 22: More than 2 folds

Hello friends! And welcome to another fun Pile it On challenge! This week we are making cards/projects with more than 2 folds, and our sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop! They were gracious enough to let me use this ADORABLE owl image for my project this week. You may not know this but I am a little obsessed with owls :) I just recently found out there is an Owl Garden sanctuary not far from me so I am heading there Monday-SO excited!! Expect to see some owl projects in the near future! LOL! But back to my project... cards of any kind are definitely not my forte, so I kept my multi fold project easy with a simple easel card. Here it is:
This started off with the intention of being a Father's Day card, but I ended up taking it in a different direction. All the paper is from American Crafts- their 'Chap' line. The image of course is from Digi Doodle shop. Here is a closer look at the front of the card (sorry for the off centered photo- the card just wouldn't lay down for me to take a good pic!)
The newspaper print strip- which is a little hard to see in the photo- is actually a print from the Imagine Vintage Papers cart. I then punched the edge and added some ribbon. The owl is colored with Copics, and popped up on foam dots for added dimension. The moon and stars are also popped up. I also inked all the edges with some distress ink. Here is the interior:

I hope you have enjoyed my project today- thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the Pile it On blog to see all the other awe-inspiring projects our Design Team has come up with and join in the fun!!
