Challenges galore!!

Hope your Sunday is going as well as mine!! Today me and my DH completed 3 beautiful months of married life and we have a little celebration planned for the evening *wink* .

And the card I am sharing now is a very special one because I am completely in love with it :) and I played a number of challenges also. I used the sketch over at Taylored Expression Sketch #130, color Orange from the Fashionista Friday #49, color Brown from smArt-Word Challenge, colors from FTTC86 - green, brown, orange, cream, Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge#23 - button and bow and the Hero Arts Weekend Challenge WCMD2010 of using your favorite colors(Go over and play and you might get lucky to win some awesome Hero Arts Stamps).

I used my newly bought smART rubber stamp for this card. I cut out the circle above the owl's head and placed a yellow paper beneath. The edges of the cream paper is torn and distressed with a black ink. I finished it with a green button and twine bow.

Hope you like it!! Thanks for visiting!!

*Updated* - This card got featured on Practical Scrappers - Distressed Cards Showcase.

For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D)

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.
