Wise owl

I guess I should be learning by now, or at least have cleaned up my crafting stuff and placed my notes on my table instead.
I haven't managed to do the first task yet, so I keep on creating with all the mess around me :) Somewhere between papers and books, I made this masculine Cristmas/any occasion card yesterday. 
For the central motif, I used a picture of an owl from an old calendar. 
Around it, I stitched a silver swirl border which I decorated with tiny pearls. In the end, I placed everything on a matching background paper with a branch-braided pattern.
And matching the brown shades of te card, a glimpse of the parish church of Trnovo.
