Owls and Birds

Good morning everyone...hope you had a wonderful weekend!!! I worked in the yard on Saturday and cleaned up my house after a week of grandkids on spring break...we sure did have fun!! After church yesterday I went to my son David's to cut my youngest DGS's hair. At 16 months old, he looked like a wild man with all his curls!! His mom and dad couldn't take it any longer so grandma came to the rescue!! In my other life before going to nursing school, I was a hairdresser and used to cut my children's hair before they decided that wasn't cool...LOL!! Anyway....I worked all Sunday afternoon on this card. I don't know why I couldn't get it all together.... I knew what I wanted to do, just couldn't get there...YKWIM?? I tried several different color combos, lots of papers, colors, and embellies. Finally, after leaving it alone for about an hour, it all came together!!
The sweet image is called Time and Season by Unity...it was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on the Bella Blvd cloud dp. It was then stamped on white cardstock, colored with copics, cutout, and adhered over the dp stamped image. I noticed I forgot to color the leaves but I'm not going to fix it now......just pretend I ment to do that...LOL!!
Recipe:
Stamps: Unity
Paper: White, Chocolate Chip, October Afternoon's Fly a Kite and Cherry Hilldp, Bella Blvd dp
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Die-namics scallop die, Twill, Button, Twine, Large Oval scallop Nestabilities, Copics

I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #109 and a few other challenges:
2. Let's Ink it Up - punches/die cuts
3. Totally Gorjuss - buttons
Thanks for stopping by....have a great Monday!!!

All of your indecision paid off in the end...your card is wonderful! I know what you mean tho...many a times I have walked away from my creations and then come back to get a fresh perspective on them. LOL! Thank you for playing with us at IDIC this week. Good luck!
