You're a Hoot

I just ordered some Paper Smooches stamps for the first time (what has taken me so long??) and I can't wait to get them.  While waiting, I thought I'd print off a couple of their free digi images (yep, FREE!) and play along in this week's Sparks Challenge.  Here's what I came up with...


The sketch looked really cool and simple.....but oh my word, did I EVER make it COMPLICATED by trying to do these panels of DP.....seriously, it's embarrassing how long it took me to make this card because I kept messing up the panels....lol!  The owl and die-cut sentiment are up on foam tape and I linked them together with some twine.  Papers are Quite Contrary Jack and Jill by My Mind's Eye; they're all glued down together onto a panel of CS and then that panel was glued to the card base with foam tape.  Copics used:  E41, E42, E43, YR15, YR21, BG11, BG93, BG96.


Have a really great day!
