Die Cuttin Divas - April Sketch - Owl Always Love You

Hello, Crafty Makers
I am amazed at how well I have been able to stick to my crafting resolutions. I wanted to do more stash reduction, so I went to Paper Playful in search of a challenge and found Die Cuttin Divas's Sketch Challenge.  
Owl Always Love You
First, I closed my eyes, reached into one of my 6"x6" paper bins and pulled out a pad.  I was a little concerned when I opened my eyes and saw that I had selected "Sweet Owl" a pad by First Edition Papers®.  I have had this pad for a long time and while I thought the papers were pretty, I could just never figure out what to do with them.  
Next, I went to my stamp collection and there I found this cute Inkadinkadoo® Owl stamp that I purchased umpteen years ago for two back when stamping owls was all the rage. 

The owl was stamped on mauve paper in black ink and then stamped again with VersaMark™ ink and then heat embossed with clear glittered embossing powder.  Although it does not show well in the photo, the papers are embossed with similar embossing powder.  I created the sentiment on my computer.  The black letters have a thin pink outline.  I finished off the sentiment by adding Wink of Stella™.

Stuff I Used:
Solid Paper: Kraft Card Stock  4.25" x 10.00"(project size is 4.25" x 5.50")
Pattern Paper: First Edition Papers® "Sweet Owl" Premium Pad
Stamp:  Inkadinkadoo® Mini Owl
Inks:  Momento® Ink "Tuxedo Black", VersaMark® Embossing Ink
Misc:  Elmer's Glue, Wink of Stella®, Small Brad
