Owl I Want For Christmas....

It's time for a color challenge at Christmas Card Challenges 
and check out these awesome ones.

I've had this owl stamp and coordinating die for a long time
but don't use it too much but I thought today's color challenge
at Christmas Card Challenges would be a perfect time to pull it
out and dust it off.

I've always loved the look of grey owls in the winter so that's what I
went with and of course I had to throw a couple of googly eyes in
just for fun. I wish now that I had added some falling snow.....
back in a few minutes.

So I went and played with the embossing paste and my falling snow
stencil. It was a little hard to get it around the owl because of
the googly eyes but I love how it looks with the snow.

Now, check out what the rest of the DT has come up with for
this challenge. I hope you'll be inspired to play along.

Happy Stampin'
