Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is my card to show you today made while I was drawing and colouring with Aleeza. Yes, we both made the same owl and this is what I drew and coloured with her. I was quite impressed with myself and how this card turned out. The diecut leaves are from Spellbinders while papers are from my stash, probably Bo Bunny. I so easily over look using designer papers on my cards and it is a wonder that I remembered. Lol. I touched up the owl with my loyal Sakura gold gel pen which NEVER fails to lift up what I have created. The tiny sequins you see on the left are from my stash. I have tried to distress the edges of the image and have sponged it too. The sentiment is handwritten with a Staedler marker. 

 Below is a closeup of the owl with gold touches.

I will enter my card in the following challenges: - showcase really of anything - orange, yellow, kraft

Happy crafting,
