Color My Heart Color Dare #105

The color inspiration for this week at Color My Heart Color Dare Blog Challenge, is Sunset, Pear and Barn Red.

I wanted to make a card using the owl from Give a Hoot, Close To My Heart's August Stamp of the month. I color matched the owl with alcohol markers so it would match Barn Red, and I also stamped the sentiment from Balloon Talk (April's Stamp of the month and it's now retired) Barn Red. I did more color matching with with my alcohol markers for the colors Sunset and Pear, since I don't have the paper on hand. The glittery green paper and Baker's twine which surprisingly were good matches for the color are from my stash. I punched the edge of the green paper with a Martha Stewart border punch and added some Assorted Crystals Sparkles to the flowers and the owl's eyes...for who can possibly resist an owl with sparkly eyes and a strokable belly? :-D
