Day 4: Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop

Today is the last day of Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop. I feel so lucky to have had a chance to join Faith's crew this week for the hop. And I've so enjoyed reading everyone's comments. Thanks for the taking the time to stop by my blog this week! And now onto today's card...

Using Owl Be There, I created a bookmark/card set. The inspiration for this set actually came from one colorful scraps of paper left on my desk after a cardmaking session. I adhered all the strips down and punched circles from the cardstock. The owl was colored with Copics and then adhered to a bookmark embellished with matching cardstock. The sentiment comes from the Ladybugs and Carnations set.
