Marvelous Masking, part II

While making the card from yesterday's post, I also made a mini card using the some of the same design aspects.Here's the card - 

Instead of doing a standard A2 size card, I halved it - the finished card is 4 1/4" x 2 3/8".  I kept to the same collor pallette, but used different inks.  I opted for some Stampin' Up! colors.  I used Wisteria Wonder for the purple and Daffodil Delight and So Saffron for the yellows.  I still used an owl, but I opted for a larger owl this time around.

I think this owl is adorable!

Challenges - 

Miscellaneous - stick back notes

edited to add - Emily asked in the comments what stamp I used for my stripes.  I can't believe I forgot that part!  I used the Sanded Background stamp from Stampin' Up.  It's one of my favorite background stamps, but it's been discontinued.  I found one on Ebay here if you want to see what it looks like.  And thanks for all of the encouraging comments!
