Lawnscaping, Simon Says, and ColourQ

Hi there.  I learned today that Simon Says Stamps has two challenge blogs--both with fabulous prizes.  How could I not have known that?  Did you know that?  

I have a card for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge No. 50:  Winter Wonderland,  Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog:  Let's Get Paper Piecing, and Simon Says Stamp and Show:  What Are You Known For?    My card uses several Lawnscaping Sets to create a wintry scene, is paper pieced with Handmade by Lily Bee papers, and features an Owl (of course, as that is what I think I am known for).  I just love that itty bitty snowflake, from Sweet Christmas.

My next card uses this weeks ColourQ challenge cQc #173, which I interpreted into PTI colors as Terracotta Tile, Summer Sunrise, Sweet Blush, Kraft and Vintage Cream.  I must be honest and say that I was not in love with these colors.  However, I did like the skirt, so thought perhaps I could make them work on a card.  I've had this Penny Black I chart stamp for quite a while, and wanted to pair it with Lawn Fawn's Clear to see, just like Kim did here.

I started by stamping a random pattern of eye glasses in Terracotta Tile, Summer Sunrise, and Kraft.  

Here is the card.  I am also entering this card into the Moxie Fab Challenge #49:  Make Your Own Background Paper.

Stamps:  Lawn Fawn Winter Owl, Critters in the Forest, A Birdie Told Me, Sweet Christmas
