DT - Sketch Challenge - Owl Card

Today's "DT Post Card"

For this weeks challenge is a sketch!!!!

Hey everyone!  Welcome to this sketch challenge!  I changed up a few things but I really like how this card turned out!

Firstly I used some of this beautiful paper that I had left over in my stash and sewed a similar coloured strip across the card mat.  I wrapped a ribbon with hearts around the matt and then matted it up with some purple paper.  I love how this makes everything pop!  I adhered the whole piece to my black card base.

Now to embellish, I cut out the owl, purple mat, and black scalloped circle mat with spellbinders dies.  I used some pop dots to pop this arrangement up.  I put together a few flowers and a brad that matched the colour of the owl and background paper's colour.  I added this with hot glue.  Lastly I added some bling and a sentiment I made with MS Word to make sure the colours matched!

I hope you enjoyed this project!  Please check out the other DT members' projects!  Thanks so much for joining me for this Challenge over at Stamps & fun = Creativity!
