Unscripted Sketches #50 and Heart to Heart Challenge #2

I'm so excited to be able to sit down and get some play time in again!!!  I've missed doing the Unscripted Sketches, their DT is so inspiring!  

Of course, the rest of this weekend will be spent prepping for my husband's birthday party.....booo!! ;O)  I swear everybody and their brother has had a birthday in the last two months and I am SO over it!!  My son can't figure out why if everyone else has had a birthday, why he doesn't get to have one too.  It's getting harder and harder to explain every time we go to a party that his is still over 8 months away!!

Anyway, enough whining, onto the card! ;O)  I was so excited to get to sit down and do my first Heart to Heart Challenge until I realized how tough it was!  The Unscripted Sketch this week was perfect for the rules though, 1 stamped image, 2 pieces of patterned paper, and 3 embellishments.  I just struggled to meet the requirements!!  I may get the boot anyway for using a digi stamp from Wink Wink Ink called Owlfie (how cute is he though-I couldn't resist!) instead of a CTMH image.  I have not been using my Copic markers much lately and thought Owlfie was the perfect excuse I needed to dig them back out.  I need lots of practice, but all in all, I thought it turned out o.k..  So, here's my qualifying components....Owlfie was the one stamped image, Veranda Creative Basics worked perfect for the two patterned papers, and for the three embellishments I used Robin's Nest Dew Drops, CTMH Creme Brulee ribbon, and clear Stickles on the branch for a little sparkle.

I also cheated and used two more stamps for the sentiment a third stamp set for fun on the insiden  Oops! ;O)  Hopefully, the next challenge will be easier for me...but, then what would be the point I suppose!!
