HLS October CAS Challenge - Paper Piecing

Hello friends.  Playing along with the folks over at Happy Little Stampers today, where the challenge is to use paper piecing on your CAS card.  I had a hard time passing this little guy up from Stampendous and thought he fit the bill perfectly for this months paper piecing challenge.  Take a look:


I stamped this adorable little guy (Santa Hat Owl) in Memento Black ink, colored him lightly with  a C1 and C3 Copic marker, and then paper pieced his hat with Pure Poppy Bitty Dot DSP (PTI).  I used a  Pumpkin Pie marker (SU!) for his beak and added some Dazzling Diamonds for his hat brim and pom pom.  I also used a Spellbinders oval die to cut him out and then inlaid him back in just to give a little simple visual contrast.  Thought about adding a sentiment to the outside, but decided against as I really like just the CAS look to this card...and the hat says it all anyway! :0)

You've got almost the whole month of October to play along, so check out what the design team and players have created and play along.  You can find all the info right HERE.

Also entering this in Simon's Wednesday Challenge which is also CAS Christmas.  You can check it out HERE.
