Blogger's Challenge #163

Wow - I can't believe that this challenge #163.  This week is a sketch challenge.  Lisa posted the following sketch.
Posted by Picasa
Well I decided that it was tiime to break out the Owl Punch that I absolutely love but haven't really used yet...  So I played around with the punch and the Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper and came up with the following design.

So in using the punch I learned the following lesson.  You need tiny scraps of paper for the various pieces of the owl in different colors and designs.  So make several at a time and then you have them for the next card....
Hummmm....  I think that the owl punch will be one of my fall card kits... Card details:
Cardstock:  Pear Pizzazz, Baja Blue, Pumpkin pie, Real Red
Designer Paper:  Greenhouse Gala
Accessories:  Two part Owl punch

I am looking forward to seeing what my other blogging friends have done.  Don't forget to check them out.

Have a great weekend!

Your owls are all adorable. Time consuming to punch them all out and put them all together, but now you have a bunch! Great card.
