And here is our sketch #60 by Claudia:

Our design team has some great inspiration. And I have seen some wonderful entries from this past week. So check them out and then be sure to get your entries in this next week!

For this sketch I chose AuroraWings We Are No Evil to color; I used my Copics and a Twin Touch Brush marker:

Leaves: YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99
Darling Baby Owls: E70, E74, E77, E79, TTBR98, E51, E53, E55
Branch: E70, E74

I decided to use CS only on this; I chose Stampin' Up. I used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Distressed Stripes, on the three vertical pieces. (Note: I rotated the sketch.) Then I die-cut my image with a Cheery Lynn Silver Stackers L-7 Oval. I mounted this on a piece cut with a Cheery Lynn Celtic Oval Boutique Stackers die. I finished the card with: a bow from SU ribbon, a safety pin, an owl charm, and some Tim Holtz Alpha Tiles. Hope you find time to create with us!

I am entering this card into a couple of challenges:

Through The Craft Room Door Anything Goes
Inky Impressions Something New (in my case, the image and E.F.)

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
