HSS Color Splash Challenge #32

There's a band new gorgeous Color Splash Challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week. If you have the a few extra moments to dabble this week I strongly encourage you to join us. Here's a peek at the challenge colors and full details can be found here.
The card I made today is for a special little girl who is very dear to my heart.
I also made her birthday invites and will be sharing those later this week after they're mailed out. Her birthday is owl themed and I got my card idea by combining two cards from the NEW 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog (pgs. 82 & 94).

I started with a Crumb Cake card stock base. Next I applied a piece of Early Espresso card stock that had been torn along the top and bottom. Next I adhered a layer of Tangerine Tango card stock that had been run through my Big Shot using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A piece of our BRAND NEW 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon in Daffodil Delight was tied vertically around it before adhering. These were all adhered with SNAIL Adhesive.

For the focal layer I cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock with the larger scallop from the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die using the Big Shot again. The branches were punched from the Two-Step Bird Punch in Old Olive card stock. The owls were punched from the BRAND NEW Two-Step Owl Punch. This punch is amazing. It makes it so easy to create unique, adorable owls in an instant! I added one of our NEW Basic Rhinestone Jewels to one of the owls and used my Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pak to punch the flower from Tangerine Tango card stock. This was adhered to a NEW coordinating Bitty Button and tied with Linen Thread.
The sentiment is from the Look Who's Turning set and stamped in Early Espresso ink. The final touch was to add the "2", which I punched from the Timeless Type Medium Sizzlits Dies in Tangerine Tango card stock as well.

LOVE MY BLING? The NEW Rhinestone Jewels come in a pack of 150. 50 of three different sizes for only $4.95 and they're self adhering! There is also a pearl pack available-so easy to use and they make an immediate statement on any card.
