Thinking of hoo--MTSC #44

Just under the wire again for Mercy's sketch this week. Sigh. Seems to be a trend here, doesn't it? This post will be a quickie ;-) I did this card with images from this month's kit from My Favorite Things, Thinking of Hoo and I'm using patterned paper from the new Nutmeg line from Cosmo Cricket. I stamped the main image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink twice, and then I stamped the limb image on patterned paper. I colored the owl image, cut it and the limb out and paper pieced them on the original stamped copy. The rest is pretty simple. I need to point out that the ribbon in real life is BROWN gingham--it's showing up black on my monitor, but it is dark brown. I love how this turned out and it was super easy!

Thanks for stopping by today! And don't forget the contest at MFT Member Forum at SCS:
