Colour Q #52 with Stampin' Up! Owl Punch (118074)

Happy Tuesday!!! We have an exciting twist to the Colour Q challenge this week! But first, Congratulations to our fabulous host Arielle!!! We've reach 52 challenges and celebrating 1 year of the Colour Q! I just love this weekly color challenge and I'm so honored to be part of the Design Team! I hope you'll have time this week to join us and play along with the challenge this week and use the sketch + your favorite past Colour Q combo! Here's what I came up with!

I chose to use a recent color combination of some of my favorite Stampin' Up! colors, which includes Soft Suede, Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Marina Mist, and Whisper White! These colors go along perfectly with the NEW Stampin' Up! Elegant Soiree DSP. I punched out some of Mr. Owl's eyes in the swirl patterned paper and used it since I thought it made him look kinda sick - and since this is a Get Well Card....I hope it works together! LOL! I pretty much always use the Woodgrain Background stamp with the Two-Step Owl Punch - they just go so perfectly together! I stamped the Soft Suede square piece of cardstock and double layered it with another piece of Soft Suede cardstock. Then layered the scallop circle on top with Stampin' Dimensionals!
