Father Christmas Owls

Every now and then there are 5 Saturdays in a month and at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown we like to do something a bit different.  We have had Anything Goes (but a card, tag or ATC) for a while so we're ringing the changes with a new type of challenge.  Now we will ask you to do a 'Previous Challenge' BUT not any old previous one, a particular type, chosen by that month's hostess.  For June it is a previous sketch, so you can use any one of our sketch challenges -there are about 20 to choose from. I've gone for one that was before my time on the DT so I've never actually done it before, way back it's sketch #2!

and I've made a fun little card with it

I used some textured DP from the Holly Berry Bouquet range again and then some ivory and red cs to make my little owls in their Santa suits. The Santa hats and gold mirriboard buckles I cut out freehand and then I stuck on some googly eyes. I heat embossed the sentiment and popped it up on a banner I cut and scored. I've just noticed that one of my owls looks a little bit tipsy as his hat and belt aren't quite straight, too much egg nog I fear!
The other members of the DT have all chosen their favourite sketches so have a look at the blog and we'd love to visit yours, so do join in with us this week.
