Sugar Sketch 30...

Good afternoon, my lovelies!  I've been having a play at my crafty table and decided to join in with this week's sketch over at Sugar Pea Designs.  I am so grateful for sketches at the moment as they really help to kickstart my creativity - I think without them, I would shuffle paper around from here to eternity!
...I decided to use the Owl image topper from Animal Antics and added the sentiment and a couple of balloons from one of the embellishments sheets.  The papers are from the Cat, Owl and Fish design sets and the sentiment is from the Owl set...
I added a touch of glitter and some Glossy Accents to his eyes, beak and feet (but guess what?! Yep, you guessed it - they don't show up very well in the photograph!) I inked all the edges with Vintage Photo DI and completed the inside with a writing panel and diagonal stripe of polka dot paper to match the front.
Looking now, I should've made the owl topper a little bit shorter in height, but once the layers are stuck together, it's a bit tough! Oh well!
So there's another week gone and we're into October, though you wouldn't know it from the weather - not that I'm complaining!  We have beautiful blue skies and sunshine again today and forecast the same for the next few days, so my washing machine will be on overdrive! Have a fantastic weekend!

Great card Lisa, I love this owl and have used it a lot! Love the layout too. I think I'll have to do the same as you - find a good sketch to kick start my crafting again!
