Owl Hello

It was a very hard to decide what to use this morning.  My first real order from the catalog came in on Monday and I am re-modeling a bedroom into a laundry room so my time is not spent stamping right now and I feel guilty doing anything else.  Well, this morning between running my son to driver's training and picking him up before lunch and then off to a doctor's appointment I had a few to sit down and play (after all I could not do any sanding since I was already dressed for the doctor appointment). :)  I took a look at the Sketch challenge and this card just fell in to place.  It was probably the easiest concept card I have made in a very long time. The biggest challenge was to decide what of my new order was going to be used.  Since I am trying to hold the budget tighter and I tend to buy a lot of Designer paper (and not use it) I only allowed myself to buy one pack of paper this time so that really helped with the color scheme.  I knew the second I saw the sketch that I wanted to use the owl punch and they fit perfect in the concept.  I did do quite a bit of sponging.  I think the only thing I dd not sponge was the white of the owl's eyes.  I am so glad I bought some of the pretty new ribbon. I just love this Victoria ribbon!! and should I use the pearl halves or the rhinestones....I went with the pearls since they seemed to match my color scheme more.  I did stamp off the light flower on the jewelry tag punch to lighten it.  I popped up the middle owl with a Dimensional.

  3. What a cute idea for the new owl punch. I think he has been a very popular guy (altho, there must be gal owls too.).
