Christmas Owl

The new seasons Christmas paper pads have just arrived into our shops - and I couldn't resist purchasing some of them!

Open Minded Crafting Fun - Roll Out The Red
http://open-mindedcraftingfun.blogspot.co.nz/2014/09/challenge-19-roll-out-red.html

I have used a paper from one of my new purchases.  This one is from a paper pad by Sugar and Spice called "Tweetie Christmas".  They are double sided papers which does make it hard to choose which side to use!  The image that I have used is from Dilly Beans.  I ran with the red colour scheme even using R000 on the holly leaves!  However, I did add a touch of yellow on the beak using Y06.  The other reds that I have used are R59, R46, R17 and R14.  I also added some Stickles to the image.  The matting is red glitter cardstock from DCWV.  I also added some small buttons embellished with some red and white twine from American Crafts.
