  3. Create a flower stem by stamping the DesignBlock Line and Flower Pattern with olive on a scrap from a Green Apple Notecard. Cut out one of the lines.
  4. Punch out a small circle from Cantaloupe Notecard and adhere it to the center of a red Art Flower. Adhere the flower and stem so that it looks like the owl is holding it.
  5. Adhere two more Art Flowers to the card, then add punched circles for centers.
  6. Add Orange Gemstones to the flower centers and the flowers in the grass.

For a quick card with no coloring, stamp the Big Owl on a Kraft Notecard.
