Sending 'Owl' Our Love

As My Little Miss Zoe's birthday fast approaches, here's the card I made for our boys to give to their sister. I bought this digi from Pollycraft recently, and it's another one I've been dying to use!

Her name is Celeste Amberglow, and this is just one of 6 new fab images of her. I coloured her using Promarkers and cut around the image, then mounted her onto a scalloped oval mat.

My papers are Dovecraft Sugar & Spice and I've matted onto dark brown card. I followed this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday, but turned it 90 degrees clockwise.

I am really pleased with how it turned out, and it's quite a contrast from the pink and girly card I made for her from DH and I, which you can see HERE. The border punch at the bottom of the card is a Martha Stewart one. I cut out 3 little flowers from one of the co-ordinating DPs and added a few flat-backed pearls to finish.

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking.
