Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16

 Everyone having a good Labor Day? We've been laboring on our new patio and it's coming along great! The boys were disappointed that we took their sandbox apart, but they had fun tamping down the sand anyway. My hubster also has been trimming our hedges and cutting off dead branches from the trees on our property. They made for a wonderful bonfire last night. Fall cleaning maybe?
I LOVED the colors that Dawn choose for the newest color challenge she issued. Aren't they pretty?
I actually made several different cards using these colors and I like all of them, but I'm only submitting one for the Raspberry Suite Challenge.
I bought this awesome tree and owl stamp at the StampScrapArtTour convention last weekend. It's by Memory Box and I just love it. I stamped it in brown and colored it in with my copics. Then I stamped it again, and cut out the owls and popped them up on the original image. Then I cut the entire thing out and adhered it to an oval of kraft CS.
I used PTI's Polka Dot Basics for the background, and Friend's 'til the End.
I'm super-pleased with how this turned out! Even my hubster commented on it (which is a miracle indeed!), and told me his Aunt Martha would love it because she and Uncle Joe collect owls. Hey, the fact that he even noticed it made my day! I took this photo on the carpet in the early morning sun, and I like the shadows of the owls...aren't they cool?
Thanks for stopping by today friends,
