Cozy winter Owl

Good evening everyone!  Hope you had a good Monday!  My Monday was crazy busy... but so will the rest of the week!  I still managed to put in a bit of craft time :D

I really wanted to play with the fabulous digi that I won last time I played at Meljen's challenge.  So I made a little card with him.  He's totally adorable and was a total joy to play with!
I started out with a wonderful sketch that I will post down my blog from sweet sketch... I chose my paper and layered it... but I really wasn't happy with the look... so then I took out my Tim Holtz distresser and really had fun!  I really love how it turned out it seems that's what this card was calling for.

The paper is from Toga - Le p'tit bloc.  I used my classic squares, scallop circle and classic circle dies all from Spellbinder!  Those are really my go to dies I realize...  I seem to form some habits... going to have to break them or else my other dies will be lonely...  I added a little ribbon from my stash.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  I added some stickles to the hat and some liquid appliqué for the snow to which I added some glitter ritz in warm white.

Here's a look at the fabulous sentiment from Create with TLC,

Here's the sketch that I followed:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Sweet sketch wednesday - The fabulous sketch
  2. Meljens designs - Critters
  3. Cutie Pie challenge - distress your card

So what do you think?  Did I do good?!?  I believe that with the beautiful Meljen's digis.. you really can't go wrong...

Good night everyone!
