Embellish Owl Color Challenge

Hey everyone! I finally had a chance to make a card for the latest Owl Color Challenge over at Embellish. Aren't those colors so yummy together! This has to be one of my favorite color combos. Great job to Ashley for putting these beautiful and inspiring photos together. I chose to go with PTI colors: Melon Berry, Dark Chocolate, Spring Moss and Vintage Cream. Here is what I came up with...
I don't own any owl stamps and my printer has gone wacky on me, so I couldn't even print the image that was provided by Savitri Wilder. So I though it would be fun to draw one by hand and paper piece the colors of the challenge into my own friendly little owl...
I drew an owl shape onto brown cardstock and cut him out. Gave him a ruffly belly by layering scalloped strips, cut with decorative scissors. Punched two different sized circles for his eyes and cut his nose by hand. To coordinate with my little friend I continued the ruffled belly idea onto the bottom of the card.

Next he needed something to perch onto, so I created a branch using a sentiment and tree image from Beyond Basic Borders. Stamped the sentiment in brown, to create the branch, and then inked the top of the tree image in green to create some foliage.

What a fun challenge this was! Anyways, thanks for stopping in for a visit today, hope you liked the card.
