Sweet Sketch Wednesday #84

I had a  little time while the kids were taking Language tests, so I scurried off to my 'craft cave'. . .one of these days I'll have pictures to share.  I have so much 12x12 dp that is double sided and I am now loving that idea more and more.  I've decided to start using it to make cards. . .I mean actually cutting it to the size of 4 1/4" x 11" so that I can fold it in half and have a card base.  I LOVE how it's turning out, and I'm using up gobs of my 12 x 12 paper.  The insides end up being just as pretty as the outside without a lot of fuss!

This card was made using the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch, and I used one of my newest sets from There She Goes called You're a Hoot.  Those little owls just crack me up!  TSG is quickly becoming one of my favorite companies :D
 I curved the sentiment 'here for you'. . .one of the great things about clear stamps.  Originally I was going to put the 'Owlways' on the front, but I just liked the look of it on the inside with those little flying owls.
 I added a crocheted flower for a little 'extra'.
Stamps:  You're a Hoot
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Hot Cocoa (CDS)
Paper:  Cottonball White (CDS), SU dp
Accessories:  Copics, dimensionals, crocheted flower, button, brown thread, Circle Nestabilities, Argyle, Swiss Dots, & D'vine Swirls embossing folder, sponge
