SSSC123......Party Owl


 It's Sunday which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge sample.

Here is the sketch that Karen has for us this week:

While looking at the sketch and deciding what I wanted to do with I decided on two things, I wanted to use my owl punch and I wanted to use some more of the Stampin'Up Sunny Garden  DS paper pack, this pack is retiring soon and I will miss it, but I have used it alot.

I was looking around and saw this cute little bag with made with the owl punch and using the Hostess Birthday Bakery stamp set. I loved it, so cute!!! So I used that as my starting point. My card base is Poppy Parade and I followed that with some so saffron card stock. Of course the DSP is from the Sunny Garden pack. I punched out the owl with poppy parade and added his little vest with some of the DSP. I added some googlie eyes to my owl. The sentiment and the gift bag he is carrying comes from the Birthday Bakery stamp set. I stamped the bag onto some DSP and paper pieced the heart and stripe. The tissue paper is actually white tissue paper. I used some Early Espresso Bakers twine for the handle. I then decided my "Party Owl" needed to bring some balloons to the party so I dug out my "Crazy for Cupcakes" stamp set and stamped out some balloons onto some so saffron, poppy parade and DSP. I cut them out and added them to the card with some dimensionals.

I used some Early Espresso Bakers Twine for the balloon tails and then covered the balloons with crystal effects.  I finished off the card with some poppy parade ribbon and a few silver pearls.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
