Owl'll Wish You a Merry Christmas!

I had to dress Poppy up in a patterned paper, just had to.  I turned the Delicate branch frame upside down so Poppy could sit relaxed and happy.  I hear him whistling a merry tune right now.   I wondered how this would work upside down, but I think it actually looks like it was made for dear Poppy, don't you?

I used a patterned note card that had a white die-cut like center and I knew the branch frame would not fit the note card framing, but thought I'd give it a go and I think it works.  It's not too far from the outline and the focal point (yes, it is the owl) draws the eye past any discrepancies in matching the die-cut with the imprinted card base.  HAPPY DAYS!

Hope you like Poppy.  He's totally fun to work with.
