H{owl}oween!

So, I got the most darling owl set from the consignment sale the other day and I had to use it to make a Halloween card!  I'm thinking this will be the LAST Halloween card of the season as I'm a bit Halloween'd out...I've used inspiration from four fabulous challenges and I do like the end result.  I hope you will, as well!

Here's the card~

For these fabulous challenges~


sketch #73



I was really inspired by the pennants in the photo at colourQ and so I decided to pull out my pennant punch and create a banner to mimic the band in the sketch.  Rhinestones seemed about the only embellishment that would do, so I added some and then sprinkled some more onto the starry sky in my image.  I've also used this month's technique at my Technique Tuesday challenge--BargelloMy TIP for creating a bargello background--make sure you use STRONG adhesive and glue down every single small piece.  Otherwise you'll have panels falling off of your card! You've got just about one day to create something fabulous in order to win a prize, so please check it out and play along!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  I hope you come and play along with all these fabulous challenges--I love seeing what other people create!  Happy stamping! :)

I've never tried the Bargello technique, but I'm now inspired to give it a go - love the effect of it! Love your owls too! Your card is beautifully designed with the added pennants, and the rhinestones finish it all off so nicely! Lovely card, Mynnette!
