Owls for Freshly Made Sketches

I just love a good sketch. I don't always have time to play along but I couldn't resist this one from Freshly Made Sketches. #49 - almost to the magical number, 50! I recently bought the Owl Builder punch and had to use it. These little guys aren't so little any more when you are lining up 5 of them! Here's my take on the sketch, built on a 5x7 card base.

Cute, right? I have a thing for using the same family of colors. I just started pulling card stock out of my Brights folders and came up with this combination. The yellow die cut is a creative opportunity - I stamped the sentiment in Pacific Point and it looked a little crooked to me, so I covered it up... probably would have been better in Pacific Point on white but I'm not going to change it now. Anyway these little owls were so cute, I had to make another one for the inside.

I think it's pretty apparent what supplies I used so I won't list them all this time. Have a great week - I actually have another post coming tomorrow, surprise!!

Thanks for stopping!

  3. Love how you have your owls looking different directions! Thanks for playing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. Those little owls are perfectly precious, Becca! LOVE the textures you've tied into them, and the off-shoot of a primary color palette is divine!
