A challenge that's Close to My Heart

This week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge was a good one!  Well, then again, aren't they all?

Anyway, here's the sketch we got to play with this week:

It just so happened that I recently received yummy goodies from Close to My Heart.  I purchased the Lollydoodle Card Making Kit from My Close to My Heart Consultant, Kathy Carr.  I LOVE the stamp set that came with this set and I thought it went perfectly with the sketch.  Of course I had to add the googly eyes to the owls.  So stinking cute.

One thing I absolutely LOVE about these Close to My Heart Workshops on the Go is that they not only include the stamps, papers, cardstock and embellishments to make up to 15 or so cards, they also include on instructional brochure.  These brochures sketch out the cards for you, with exact measurements for each card and a "map" showing you how to cut your papers for efficiency and more bang for your buck.  I used one of the designs in the brochure to create this card for a swap.  Since I had all the measurements and design at my finger tips I was able to make 9 cards in a short amount of time!
