Stamping Sensations - November Challenge

Over at the Stamping Sensations Challenge the topic for November 2019 is "Traditional Christmas Colours" eg red, green and gold.

I love to see lots of different colours in Christmas cards but I am very traditional in liking red and green with a touch of gold sometimes so this was a easy challenge topic for me.

The image I have used is a holly owl called "Christmas Owl" by Woodware.  I coloured the image in with Promarkers and added Nuvo drops for the berries.

The backing papers are from my Polkadoodles "Here Comes Christmas CD".

I have finished the card off with some wide satin ribbon, sentiment from a Debbi Moore magazine, Joanna Sheen die-cut poinsettia, Marianne Designs die-cut holly and a card candi.

The Promarkers that I have used are:

Body of owl - Sunflower and Gold
Face/eyes - Poppy Red, Cardinal, Leaf Green and Bright Green
Holly - Bright Green
Stick/claws - Gold and Burnt Sienna.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

The owl is fabulous, Kym! The green eyes and red face are very striking. And it's beautifully offset by the stunning poinsettia. Thank you for sharing your lovely card with us at Stamping Sensations.

He's a rather splendid Owl Kym and your whole card has a super traditional feel. Many thanks for sharing and joining in with our 'Christmas' theme at Stamping Sensations challenge.

Thanks also for your kind words on my blog yesterday, I will certainly be checking to see if we have a Sight Concern Service as you suggest, at the moment the shock or should I say reality of it all is still sinking in.
