Holy Cow! (or Owl?)

I didn't realize how long it had been since I last posted. But I'm back and with a challenge card. I went wtih a bit of a darker interpretation of the colors for the latest Embellish Owl challenge so that it fit for a boy card (hope that wasn't stretching too much - the colors are still in the coral and green family IRL!) I used Basic Grey Archaic papers and thought it worked pretty darn well. :)

Now I must admit, this is my first and only owl card ever made (yes, I know... so behind the crafting times). In fact, I didn't think that I even had an owl stamp in my collection, but remembered this Hero Arts stamp set that I bought for Halloween pages (which have yet to be scrapped, again - so behind the times). So even though it is not a Halloween card, I still thought this particular owl would work for a birthday card I needed this past weekend. I used M's sketch to make the card (I think that I should have titled this post - "LATE," but seriously, how many times can I reference how late I always am!!). So while I know that the challenge due date had past, I just wanted Savitri and M to know that I did use the sketch.

Life is busy (as always), and I need to get sleep, so hopefully I'll see you again soon.
