Good Morning Friends!
Well, by 11am today, I'll be shivering my way in and out of a -25 deg F freezer! I'm flipping out just writing this! To save my fingers from potential frostbite, I bought a few heat packs that hikers use to keep my hands and feet warm. Hopefully they do the trick! Although, I don't know how I'm supposed to write when my gloves are full of this stuff! I'll pop in later this week and let you know how it's all going.
Anywho,....I didn't get a whole lot of cards done this week because I was preparing for this trip, but here's one I did for today's TSG challenge. It's an inspiration challenge and the image is a fabulously clean and simple interior.
I chose to use the colors (because they were so cool!) and kept the layout just as clean and simple as the image.
I couldn't think of any other set to go with these colors then the adorable owls from the You're A Hoot set! With my reinkers and aquapainter brush, I colored in the owls in a pretty nuetral palette, then cut them out. I love the look of the scalloped border (which was done with decorative scissors) - it adds a little bit of whimsy to the card, don't you think?!
To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that uses the provided sketch, then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Feb 7th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
