Whoo's Ready for a Treasure Hunt



Today I have a Treasure Hunt creation to share with you.


Here's the treasure I found at a recent yard sale:


Does anyone have an idea what it is?
It's a roll of veneer scraps, yep, real wood!
Cost - 50 cents



I used my Stampin' UP! Top Note die to cut a piece of wood for my card.



Although I love using designer papers, I chose not to use any on this card, allowing the wooden piece to be the main background for the owl image.




What a hoot!







Image: The Greeting Farm
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic markers
Cardstock: Archiver's Green and Stampin' UP! Summer Sun
Treasure: wood veneer
Embellishments: Stampin' UP! Grosgrain ribbon and Studio 18 rhinestones
