Christmas Owl

Willow Sketchie Challenge time again and this week Kate has provided us with a great sketch.  I've chosen to use the Walter and Mr Robin image, he's just so cute, from the Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD again and here is my card:

The image and papers are from the CD and I've layered them onto Kraft card stock.  I have inked the edges of the base card, the backing papers, the image and the stamped sentiment with distress ink and then added some gold organza ribbon and gold pearls to complete the card.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card which has been decorated to complement the front:

Image: Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD -  Walter and Mr Robin
Papers:  Walter and Winnie does Christmas CD
Tools:  Spellbinders - Peony
Embellishments:  organza ribbon and pearls from stash
Sentiment:  Creative Expressions

Make sure you pop over to the Willow Sketchie Challenge Blog, have a look at Kate's sketch and the other DT members cards and join in with the challenge.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Squirrel and the Fox - Hats or flowers

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge 35 - Christmas (must use ribbon)
