Annual Inspirations Hop #4

It's day four of the Annual Inspirations Hop, so I'm back with a new project. I couldn't stay away from those cute August SOTM owls, and I was in a party kind of mood after having an awesome time at my Brother's wedding...so I figured if one owl is cute, a gaggle of owls would be a celebration indeed. (I looked it up...it's a parliment of owls...but that's not very festive.)
I hopped out to Color Throwdown for some inspiration and they had a cool and summery combo for this week that I interpreted as Lagoon, Pear, Topiary, and Carmine (I used the new ShinHan Marker for my masks). I stamped the background in a gradient from Lagoon to Pear, rocking the sentiment stamp in two colors to bring the colors down the background cardstock. I pulled my thanks bubble from Cuddly Salutation, which is a hostess only set on page 10 of the new Annual Inspirations Idea Book, and the adorable What A Day set CTMH gave us at Convention down in DisneyLand.
I used post-its to make a mask of the owl body and stamp a grouping of owls. Then I cut the eye area out of my mask and used that to protect their faces as I stamped on the cute patterns (which are actually more owl eyeball options). I based my card on the new Atlantic Heart Sketch. I hope you'll grab the sketch and pop over there to share a card of your own!
Have you been keeping an eye on all the fabulousness in this on going blog hop? I've been travelling, so I hope that tonight I'll get a chance to sit down and feast my eyes on this collection of crafty goodness!
