OWH Sketch #66

I used the new Sunday (4-24) Sketch #66 at www.owhstarsandstamps.org. I've been wanting to use my new owl punch from Stampin' Up.
Card ingredients:
Papers: DCWV The Linen Closet stack
Flowers: BoHo Flower punch (SU)
Owl: SU
Branch, sentiment and speech bubble: My Favorite Things set called "Thinking of Hoo?"
White gel pen; dark brown Marvy Leplume marker

I wanted flowers but didn't want them to be too girly, so the card could possibly be for either sex. So I punched and layered my own "flowers" with the Boho Punch. The flower to the right of the sentiment is there because the metal point fell off my Marvy LePlume marker and left a nice ink mark! So I added a flower to cover. Hopefully it doesn't look too random!
Thanks for visiting!

Fantastic card. The owl's eyes are perfect, the stitching is a nice touch and the flower fix over the marker accident works great!

Such a darling card for either a guy or a girl! I agree with the previous comment that the "extra" flower helps balance out the layout. Great job!
