Whooo Do You Love???

I must be in a “pun” mood.  This card also called to me for a pun.  Not as funny as the last card, but I thought it was cute. 

Did you get the one on the inside? (Over the moon? They’re in front of the moon. LOL)

This is a close up of just the owls.  It is by Elaine Cox of Sweet Pea Designs, and when I got it, I must have been in a “dark mood” because I colored it so dark.

I hope that the yellows and light blues have helped to cheer things up a bit.  I deliberately used the light blue paper because it looks like stars; and the background paper gradates from yellow to blue as it might at sunrise or sunset.  All of the papers are scraps that I’ve used.  I added some faux stitching also.

The items used on the card are as follows:

paper – Recollections and other scrap papers
gems – Recollections
dies/punches – Cheery Lynn Designs and MS
flower – Creative Memories - new
brads, glitter – from stash
sentiments – my own

I’m entering this in the following challenges:

Jellypark Challenges – old (paper) new (flower)
If the Shoe Fits – use stash (papers, brads)
Sparkles Forum Challenges – anything except Christmas
Gingerloft Challenge – anything
Mark’s Finest Papers – brads or eyelets
One Stitch at a Time – 3 of any embellishment – three brads
Top Tip Tuesday – anything
Party Time Tuesdays – birds
Papertake Weekly – die cuts
Scrap Creations – glitter
Aud Sentiments – sentiment + scraps
The Pixie Cottage – sketch and/or stitching
Sketches by Carly – sketch
Card Makin’ Mamas – new – flower
Fairy Tale Challenge – new – flower
Simply Create Too – more than one layer
Truly Madly Crafty – anything
Cupcake Craftroom – anything
Crafters Companion UK – love is in the air
Digi Designs Challenge - new - flower
Southern Girls Challenge - sparkle 

Well, this finally finishes up my December cards. Yeah!!  Thankfully I only have two for January.  I hope you enjoyed the different ideas I’ve given you; and you will leave me a comment.

No worries Debra. You could have left your project up at Crafter's companion USA Challenge Blog if you wanted to. We enjoyed seeing it but it just didn't qualify for our challenge this time. I hope to see you entering our challenges again!! Stacy H-W
