I really liked the Sheetload Mini sketch this month (especially since it's a regular sized card) so I decided to give it a try. I gave it a little twist - instead of including 1 small image on each patterned paper panel, I used the branch across all 3 panels, and then centered the owl.
The branch and saying are both from The Landing Pad set and the owl is from the U R A Hoot set, both of which are from Cornish Heritage Farms.
I stamped the owl twice on brown Bazzill cardstock, and once on Georgia Pacific white cardstock. I colored the beak and toes with Copics on the white version and cut out the eyes with the beak, and also the toes. Then I cut out 1 full brown owl, and just the eyelids of the other brown owl. I did just a bit of shading on the full brown owl and then glued the eyelids onto the eyes. The full eyes and toes were then stuck on with foam dots.
Last notes: the branch was stamped on patterned paper, cut out, and popped up, and I did a bunch of zig zag stitching all around the PP pieces.
I really like how this card came out and may be using the sketch again in the future!
