Owl Greetings!!

I made this card using The Sweet Stop sketch number 77 for this week. Once again, I've only just made it for a challenge. Around the owl I did sponge some Antique Linen ink to lessen the white but it hasn't shown up very well in the photo. The owl is a Penny Black stamp and I've coloured him with copics (Kathy, does he look alright?). As usual I've pretty well followed the sketch to the letter. The poppy red piece I embossed with the SU folder called Petals-A-Plenty. Papers are the Jovial range by Basic Grey. I used Whisper White, Poppy Parade and Old Olive cardstock and the image is stamped on the Xpress it c/s that is recommended in Australia for Copic work.
The spray of flowers are some I had in my stash and looked quite good I thought.
For some reason I was loath to add anymore embellishments because I didn't want to take away from my owl and the gorgeous papers.
Hope you like my card.

Oh, this is so cute! Really a darling image and nice paper combo for the sketch. I tend to be pretty literal when it comes to sketches, too, but, gee, why mess with a good thing? I love how this turned out!
