Home Spun Affair - Color Challenge June

I came across Home Spun Affair's Blog and decided to join in on their June Color Challenge with the colors being Yellow, Pink and Salmon.

Here's my card:
The yellow and salmon colored papers come from Lawn Fawn's Petite Paper Pack and the pink paper and the paper for the owl came from Echo Park's So Happy Together 6x6 Pad.  The paper that the "Thank You" is embossed on is salmon, but I think it's hard to tell in the lighting.

I feel I'm lacking in the area of embellishments, so I try to make up for it with with texture.  I ran the pink paper through my paper crimper to give it some texture.  I used my Sizzix "Thank You" embossing folders for the sentiment.  I used my Stampin' Up textured impressions "Adorning Accents" for the top and bottom of the background (yellow) paper.  My owl is pieced together from the Stampin' Up Owl Punch.  The Xyron Create-a-Sticker comes in SO HANDY when piecing together small pieces like this!  And of course, I had to distress ink every possible edge thanks to Vintage Photo distress ink! :)  A little twin and some pop dots and it's all done!

Hope you enjoyed!  Go get your craft on!
