Woohooo...

I am playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge:

The inspiration photo, so pretty:

I also used the Cardabilities sketch for this week:

When I saw the photo I immediately thought of my Clementine paper by Cosmo Cricket.  I then dug out some of my Paper Smooches stamps and this is what I came up with.  I used the owl, sentiment and 'xo' from the Chubbie Chums set and the hearts are from the Vegetastic set.  I cut a branch from my fig tree, tied some Divine Twine on and adhered it with Glue Dots.  The cloud is made with some PTI felt and the cloud die.  For the owl I paper pieced the feet and beak by adhering them on foam dots, and the owl is mounted with foam squares. I masked off the exclamation mark on the sentiment and then added some dots... on the inside of the card says "your branch or mine?"  that I printed on my computer.  This is also for the City Crafter Challenge - to include hearts.

So, so cute, Laurel! Love that fun owl. Using the real tree branch is genius, and I laughed when I read your sentiment. Toooooo cute!
