Earth Day

Today is earth day and I thought I would 'just for fun' create a card
worthy of the day!
You are suppose to plant a tree in honor of this day,
but I'm good as I normally plant one or two a year here.

I had an idea for this card, but as I was creating it, I begin to
like it less and
So I completely started over and this is what I came up with.

I have a bunch of pre-scored card stock from my SU demonstrator days
and am bound and determined to use it up, though it may take me a lifetime!
I just find myself using mostly white card stock 
and ignoring all the pretty colors I have tons of!

So I used a pretty teal blue for the base,
and a designer paper from Echo Park Oh so Thankful collections.
The little owl is from the same collection

The globe is an SU designer paper
and the sentiment is Magenta.

That about sums it up.
It is raining here today as I am writing this up...
it is very dry so I am glad, plus it means I can
spend more time in my creative room!!

I didn't realize it was Earth Day until I was watching the news later. Oh, well, I hope I'm always doing my part. You're good to commemorate the day with a cute, earth-inspired card. Really love the proverb. Those are words to keep in mind. Fabulous Aspen tree designer paper and adorable owl. I started a nature card a few days ago, but can't seem to get back in there to finish it.
