Creatures at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you all had a good weekend and are all refreshed for the week ahead.

Today I would like to share a little inspiration for our current monthly challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
You can create anything you like as long as you follow the challenge theme.

Here is my inspiration project.

I used a cute digi image from Oak Pond Creations called Olivia Owl.  I decided to go for a monochromatic look and only added some grey promarker, for definition, to the image.  I matted the image onto black card and added some black soot distress ink and stickles around the edge for added sparkle.  The sentiment was given the same treatment.  The background paper is from Papermania and was also matted onto black card.  The ribbon and flowers are from my stash and I also added some punched corners and a little pearl embellishment to the bow. 

Our sponsor for the challenge is Oak Pond Creations.

The prize is 3 digi images of the winners choice.

For more inspiration and to enter the challenge just pop over to The Crafting Cafe
