Purple Onion Best Wishes.....

Hello everyone: I have another card to share with you for the CASology Week #174, with a Cue Card "OWL", here is my card.
This little sweetie is from Purple Onion Designs, his name is Snowy Winter Owl and I think he is just adorable. The Fence and the Sign are also from Purple Onion and right now, they are having a HOLIDAY SALE with 25% off all their stamps!!
Anyway, have you ever made a card and then look at it and then start adding stuff to it and then you feel you should STOP!!???  Well, this happened to me while I was making this card. I needed to keep it CAS but, after I finished coloring the little owl and the fence and after I sponged the sky, I thought "Hmm.. wouldn't it look really nice if snow was falling?" so I grabbed a stencil from Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow and added some snow with SU white craft ink pad and I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I added some Dazzling Details to the snow on the fence and the ground but I forgot to stamp my sentiment before adding the Dazzling Details so I was wondering where I was going to put it. Then I remember that sign so I stamped on a small piece of water color paper, stamped the sentiment and attached it to the fence with 4 "nails".
 
I think this card is kind of border line with a CAS requirements but, in my defense, I think it looks cute.  
I stamped all of this images onto Canson water color paper and colored them with the aqua painter and SU markers in Chocolate Chip, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard.
I hope you like this card, I hope it meets the CAS rules too. 
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thank you Marika, I have an embossing folder with falling snow but I wanted this card to have a softer look, this stencil is just perfect for it.
