HOOT! / ESS Sketch #57

This is my last Halloween card for this year and I have had so much fun making them!  Again, I wanted to use this this cute Hero Arts Owl-Oween set, but this time I was itching to use this CUTE owl dress like a mighty pirate! :)

After a week of withdrawel pangs, having missed last week ESS challenge, I was determine to play along with this week ESS Sketch #57! :) With this sketch, Tracy Clemente inspired us to work with a different way of layering the somewhat oval scallop accent shape.

This sketch also gave me another chance to use this fun Martha Stewart web border punch; I really do like this punch!

This simple card came together pretty quickly; adding that opaque black gem as his eye was a FUN touch :) ! And that sentiment makes me smile, what else will this CUTE little owl say? :)

Thanks for stopping by and hope your Halloween is a HOOT! :)
