Owl Always Love You

Hello dear friends!  It's Saturday and that means another card for Daydream Designs.  

This time I have picked a sweet little owl from the Owl Always Love You set.
 I colored this cutie with my Prismacolor pencils.  Coloring feathers is hard!!  I was having trouble figuring out which which way to make my strokes.  I hope he looks feather-y and not furry!
 The DP is from a stack in my stash from Basic Grey called Origins.  Lots of great paper in that stack.  The buttons are so old I'm not sure where they came from!  And the ribbon??  I haven't bought ribbon since before Christmas, so it's been around a while!  Still working on using up my stash! As always I sewed my layers, but this time with the corners punched I stopped short of the corners.  Took longer but it looks good I think.  I inked the edges and especially the corners with Tim Holtz walnut ink too.
 I used the same sketch inside.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
The Paper Shelter - Dies or Punches
Stamp n Doodle - Stitching
Use It Tuesday - Anything Goes 

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek!

Blessings & Hugs
