Stamps & Smiles Release Week

Over at Stamps & Smiles, they are having a full week of challenges leading up to their release and Blog Hop on Friday!

Today's challenge was a sketch that you can see HERE. I opted to use my lace cardstock again - now that I have cut into it, I guess I want to make sure it doesn't go to waste! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the effect it gives!

The owl is actually a Fancy Pants transparency that I purchased from Apron Strings Designs. (They have FANTABULOUS kits over there!) The sentiment is from a Kim Hughes sets (I forget the name, but it's all owls). The ovals (that I changed from the circles in the sketch) are cut out with my Nestibilities. What you can't really see in the photo is that I "sparkle-ized" (yes that is a word! It is now anyway....LOL) the small open stars and the sentiment with my Stardust pen. There is also a "border" around the white oval in the same gold Stardust pen.

And that's about all for this post.

Tomorrow there'll be a second challenge at Stamps & Smiles and I can't wait to find out what the new challenge is on Project Tuesday!!
