Happy Birthday Julee (My Mojo Owl with a Color Challenge Oops!)


Good Morning Everyone,

I combined the Color Throwdown Challenge  for this week with Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch challenge (#47), but since I made this card in the wee hours of this morning - I don't think I saw the colors quite properly --- Oops! For the color Throwdown, we were supposed to use Ruby Red - but I ended up with something that looks like a soft pumpkin color - but totally looked like it matched the color swatch in the wee morning hours. I think I must get a better desk lamp  - I can't believe I made such a color faux pas .... aww shucks! I didn't realize my mistake until ---- oh about 3 minutes ago when I was uploading the swatch for the colors this week.... well.... what can you do? 

Anyhoo - I would like to dedicate this birthday card to the amazing Ms. Julee Tilman of Poetic Artistry , who every week supplies us with Mojo-licious Sketch Challenges. Since yesterday was her birthday - I decided to use the Sketch challenge from last Monday for her birthday card - using the colors from the Throwdown this week. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULEE!!! hope you had a great day!

The sentiment and this little cute owl is from Clear Stamps and she (I am officially calling her Julee :) was stamped with Martha's brown ink onto the owl cut by my CM oval cutters - I used Martha's scalloped circle punch  for the scallops around the owl and finished her off with some cinnamon and platinum stickles. The ribbon is from a gift my friend gave me (i love saving ribbons) and everything was rounded with my corner cutter.

I really loved making this card and this little owl is just the cutest.... I am loving all the rounded corners in this little card and can't wait till monday for the next sketch from Julee and wednesday to see the colors that the girls are going to be throwing down.

Don't you just love the term Color Throwdown - everytime I write it, in my mind I hear the word throwdown on loudspeakers. It's just a fun word. And when you have a fun word with making cards -then you automatically have fun-ness sprinkled into your life.... hmmm there I go making up words again.... it might mean that I have been up just a wee bit early thanks to my two little wonder darlings. 

Hope all of you are enjoying your Saturday!
Thank you for visiting,
Ciao for now,
Sankari
