I've made a simple card based on the sketch over at Addicted to CAS. To keep it clean I didn't use a DP as background, but kraft paper distressed with walnut DI. I used my much loved star stencil from MB and embossing paste to make the starry sky. I mounted the decorated panel onto blue paper and used foam to raise it from the card base. A MB die was used to make the tree branch. The owl is part of a stamp from Marianne - the owl is actually sitting on top of a letter box, but I cut it out, paper pieced it using scrap pieces and mounted it on foam. I added glossy accent to its eyes. The Christmas sentiment is stamped.
I'd like to try my luck in these challenges with my owl card:
1) Addicted to CAS - Sketch
2) A Gem of a Challenge - #132 Paper Piecing
3) Open-Minded Challenges - #23 Fowl of Any Kind
