Owl Be Seeing Who, Who, Who...?

What a fun card to make! Love the sketch and used my new SU! Two Step Owl Punch!

I was inspired by the following challenges:

Color challenges:
Inktegrity to use favorite fall colors
Off the Wall Craftiness to use blue, cream and brown
The Pink Elephant Challenge to aqua PP and an embellishment

Embellishments Challenges:
The Alphabet Challenge W is for Wings
A Spoonful of Sugar spots (the trees) and stripes (the vest)
Crafty Creations Challenges is looking for OWLS!
Other Lovelies-Thoughtful Thursdays is "E" for anything starting with E (embellishments)
Paper Cutz Challenge wants 3 Designer Papers
Paper Pretties wants an animal or animal print
Sweet Stampin' Challenge is testing our punching skills!
and Tuesday Throwdown is feeling 'punchy' too!
Wild Orchid is into ribbons and bows

Inspirations Challenges:
Case Study Challenge - challenges us to CASE a card
and Frosted Designs asked to find a book for inspiration: I picked Harry Potter

Anything goes or Open Challenges:
One Stitch at a Time
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle
Sew Many Challenges

Sketch Challenge:
Card Positioning Systems - love this sketch!

Technique Challenges:
Corrosive Challenge wants us to try masking, that's how I made the clouds behind the owl
ABC Challenge asked for an easel card
The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge also asked for an easel card
OWH Stars and Stripes as did Operation Write Home

Theme Challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks wants a chick ie: a bird of some kind
A Crafty Little Place is Autumn theme
For Fun Challenge is Fall
Stampin' for the Weekend is Autumn
Tuesday Taggers is Autumn

Whew - isn't it wonderful how many paper enthusiasts take the time to develop challenges to help us be inspired to develop our love of paper crafting!

OK, gotta go do the dishes, therapy is over, back to reality!
