Animal Magic Sketch

Hi All!

Here we are to Thursday already! Hope you're week is going well. I did some housework this morning and rewarded myself with some stamping time. A girl needs a little reward now and again, right?! :)

While blogging I came across the new challenge on Cute Card Thursday, which is animal magic. You must use an animal somewhere on your project. Then I decided I would need a good sketch to go with this CCT challenge so I hopped over to Paper Take Weekly and found a great one by Dawny P.

This is my card, for both challenges. My animal magic with a sketch! I used these beautiful Parisian Breeze papers from Stampin' Up!. I think this is my new favorite color combo too, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Baja, and White.

The image is my Whimsy Stamps Owl, I haven't used this cutie in a while. He's colored with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. I framed him with my Labels Two Nestabilities. The embellishments are paper swirls, Prima flowers, buttons, and some Hodgepodge Hardware.

Thanks for stopping on by today. Enjoy what's left of your Thursday. Happy Stamping!! :)

Oh, one more thing before I go...just a reminder about the image swap.

10+1 images are due by Monday, March 2nd. I've been receiving packages daily and posting them as received on the swap post. If you haven't yet mailed yours off to me, please do so quickly. We want everyone who signed up to take part in swapping these great images. Thanks! You can see the updated received images lists here.
