A Spoon Full of Sugar #68 & Color Throwdown #59

This sketch and this color combination were the most fun to work with! I had a blast making this card. When I saw the sketch at A Spoon Full of Sugar I thought to myself "too busy", and just wasn't quite sure how to approach it. But the Color Throwdown of Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa & Ruby Red didn't cause me to bat an eye...even tho' orange is not at the top of my favorite color list I seem to work with it a lot, and have grown to love it for card making purposes. The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants, Delight Spice. The sentiment is Stampin' Up A Little Birdie Told Me. And I am absolutely in love with these Friendly Forest foil rub-ons from Colorbok!! Oh, if you're wondering "whooo" is the best...this card is for my daughter Whitney, she's got a thing for owls. She's just begun her second year of Vet School and might need an encouraging word in the form of a card from Mom. (Be sure to be on the lookout in the next few days...I have another darling daughter, so I'll have to be creating another "best" card!)
