Sketch Saturday #91 (DT card): Whimsy Owl

Happy Whimsical Wednesday!

Today I'd like to share with you my DT card for last weekend's Sketch Saturday Challenge #91.  So sorry I'm so late with posting my card, but I'm still suffering big time with my teeth (I even ended up at the dentist on Monday morning and received emergency treatment - ouch!).

Anyway, enough about my blooming teeth!!  We have another fab sketch from the wonderful Jo, and this week we are being sponsored by Stamp & Create :

It's my dad's 65th birthday on Friday, and whenever I make male cards, I always reach for my wonderful Whimsy animal stamps.  For this card I chose my Whimsy Owl stamp, as I felt it fitted the sketch perfectly!  I also took a break from my Copics and used my Whispers pens to colour this fab image.

I'm really sorry if the colours look weird!  We had a power outage last week (the PC was on at the time), and every since then there is a pink hue to the screen.  I've fiddled around with all the colour settings, but I can't get it to disappear properly. So.... I don't know if what I see on my screen is what you see on your screen!!  The colour of the cards are burnt orange, chocolate brown and cream.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:

1. Cute Card Thursday ... Challenge 100 - Metal Mania : CCT want to see cards/projects that feature something metal on them - I've used metal cream-painted brads and metal jewellry spacers to embellish my flowers!

I'm also posting this card over at the Whimsy Inspirations Blog.  Be sure to hop on over there to check out my fab Whimsy DT sistahs' gorgeous work, plus enter our 'Spread the Word' candy draw (open until 28th Feb).

Thanks for popping by and have a fabulous, Whimsical Wednesday!!
