Polka Doodles Sketch Challenge

Good morning folks, it's Friday again and time for a new challenge over at Polka Doodles which this week is another sketch by our head doodler Nikky and it's also our stashbox stamp week which means we use non Polka Doodles stamps with Polka Doodles elements. The theme is to make a birthday card.
Here's the sketch

My card is another owl one as I really love these and took the opportunity to use a gorgeous and very cute Tattered Angels stamp.

All of the papers I've used are from the Pretty Sweet CD as the shabby look combined with some lovely vintage colours are a perfect match (I think) for the little owl.
I stamped the owl with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on white card and decided not to colour him as I wanted more impact. I cut the panel out with a Nestabilities label die and added a paper mat cut from the next size die. I inked the edges with Crushed Olive and Vintage Photo Distress inks.
I made up the card following the sketch and finished off with a sentiment from the Back To Nature CD cut out with the Papermania square parenthesis die set.

The Design Team have again risen to the challenge and created a great variation of cards so do hop over for a look. You have until 12 noon on Sunday 29 January to enter and good luck.

Now for some challenges for my card:
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything Goes
Moving Along With The Times - Things With Wings
Whimsical Wednesdays - Anything Goes
Lollipop Crafts - No Embellishments
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes

I'm very sorry to have been neglecting you the last couple of weeks and hope to catch up soon - my days with 8 hours of figure work should be finished by the middle of next week or at least I hope so!
Hugs, Fliss xx
