Autumn Owl Card

Autumn Card
I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it. It is a free image from Designed2Delight. They have a monthly progressive challenge on their site. If you use the image they offer, they will send you a new one the following month. Check it out!

I colored the image with MS Paint and then just hit it with a little chalk to add some dimension. The card is embellished with die cut leaves cut from a damaged book, glitter and orange seed beads give the moon some sparkle.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Designed2Delight - progressive
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - #51 leaves
Fab n Funky - #139 things with wings
The Paper Shelter - #82 fall things
Fat Pages with Attitude - #23 anything goes
Dilly Beans - autumn colors
Through the Craftroom Door - anything goes
2 Sisters - things with wings
Just Some Lines - lets celebrate fall
Sentimental Sunday - #121 autumn + sentiment
Challenges 4 everybody - #3 anything goes
Simon Says Stamp & Show - love of sparkle

Hope you are enjoying Fall where you live. Autumn in New York is always beautiful!
