Owl Thinking of You!

As most of you know by now I love owls so I have quite a collection of owl stamps ... and my wonderful friends I have help me to discover new owls and sometimes even send me owl stamps .... I received this one recently from my friend Kath .. thanks again Kath :) ... and when I saw this sketch for this weeks Beate's weekend sketch challenge I thought it was the perfect set to use.

This is quite a simple sketch compared to many but I enjoyed doing it .. I did change the panel the owl is on from a small rectangle to a circle ... I found this circle laying around on my desk and as it was the right size figured why not. I used my swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss my cool caribbean panels and paper pierced the two left corners of the green panel.

Recipe:
Stamps: Owl & Sentiment - Studio G series 7
Paper: Very Vanilla, Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip & Wild Wasabi - SU; Retro DP - DCWV
Other: Black Ink; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Circle Nestabilities; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Brown Brads; Brown Grosgrain Ribbon; Foam Tape
