Colour Create #13 - Orange, green & brown

This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Jo. It's a real pleasure having Jo on the team as she is such a positive person and really enjoys everything she does. She makes the most amazing cards and has such a range of skills, so please hop over and take a look at some of her work as you won't be disappointed. Can you believe Jo also likes making cards for men? I know....... she's a rare species, lol!

Here is your colour combination then:

For this week's extra option we would like you to make a card for a man, but please remember that this is not compulsory.

**********************************

Just a simple card this week as it's for a man - no pun intended!! It is so difficult not to add ribbons and flowers and lace etc. A sentiment would have been good though - derrr...
I got this owl from America and I've had him owl for ages - he has a mate too who seems to have flown the nest at the moment as I can't find her anywhere. The brown cardstock is bazzill, the orange Basic Grey and the green K&Co . I coloured the owl with watercolours amd cut some leaves with a woodware punch for the corners.
Materials
BC - bazzill : DP - Basic Grey & K&Co Roam : Image - ? : Whispers : Nestie labels 4 : Woodware leaf punch : rest from stash
