Playing In Paradise... You're A Hoot!

It's my first official challenge over at the Scrapbooker's Paradise Ponderings blog! This week I chose a photo of this cute little hootie-pie and that's the inspiration I asked the Challenge Design Team to use this week...

Isn't he cute???

Here's what I did with my own inspirational piece this week...

You're a Hoot

I chose to stick with a lot of the colours directly from the image so I found the My Mind's Eye, "Fine & Dandy" collection perfect for this card. I used Dapper, Shining, Daydream and Snappy. This collection is double sided and so much fun to work with!

Those cute little hooters are from the Technique Tuesday stamp set, "Wise Guys". I paper pieced them using the same MME "Fine & Dandy" papers to match the card colours. I used my all time favourite stamping ink, Tsukineko (Memento) in Rich Cocoa to stamp the owls, sentiment and branch.

To create my multiple layers, I used a few fun Spellbinder dies; Classic Scallop Rectangle and Classic Rectangle.

I also use the fabulous EK Success, Open Scallop Edger; one of my favourite punches!
