Best Wishes for "Less is More".....

Hello dear friends: I'm back with another card made with the totally irresistible Purple Onion Designs and  Stacey Yacula collection little critters, this time I used Snowy the Owl , isn't he just so darn cute? I made this card to participate in the "Less us More" challenge this week and the designer team is asking us to make a ONE LAYER CARD with a theme of "Wishing" in it.  Here is my card.
I chose this design because of THIS card by the amazing Marika Rahtu, you can visit her blog Me and Minime Crafting to take a look at her incredible work. When I saw that card, I just had to CASE it.  I used a different little critter and I placed the trees on the opposite side.
The images are stamped on Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink, I colored them with the aqua painter and my SU markers in Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Basic Gray, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie.
I hope you like this one layer card, I was itching to stamp the balloon again, color it and paper snip it but the challenge called for a ONE LAYER card so I resist the temptation.
Thank you for visiting, it's always a real treat for me to find your comments, I appreciate every single word you say.
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
