Chick Challenge and Cropchocolate contest #25

I am using this card for Ippity Chick's newest challenge, and this week's contest on  The recipe this week is to make a project using a banner, and also include a button or a bow on it.  I used the sketch from the chick challenge and the recipe from CC, and came up with this card:

I used American Crafts Mixtape and charcoal baker's twine to make the banner and bows.  The background paper is all Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic 6x6 pad.  The stamps used are Unity Total Cuteness.  I used Spellbinders dies to cut the 2 squares, Close To My Heart ink and bling.  I had planned to use Copic markers on the owl but decided I liked the black and white theme to coordinate with the bakers twine, and I liked the paper piecing look.  Funny how often things turn out differently than what I see in my mind before I start.

Here's the Ippity sketch I used:

Thanks for looking at my card.  I hope you enjoy it!
