Mojo Monday 152


Stampin up mojo monday owl punch

The "Bird is the Word" for today's Mojo Monday Sketch (MOJO152) challenge.  Adorable, clever, versatile.  Need I say more about the Stampin' Up! Owl Punch and this layout?  


  • Stampin up owl punch Jewels Basic Pearls (finally, stick-ons–woo hoo!) are the perfect way to give this handsome owl a little jazz.  
  • NEW PRODUCT ALERT!  The Decorative Label Extra Large Punch (available 9/1) used for the sentiment is one of my favorite new products in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.  It's destined for your wish list!
  • To keep the button in place on the ribbon, I used Linen Thread to tie both the button and ribbon together (from underneath the knot).
  • What me, texture?  Yeah, baby and lots of it!  I used both the Elegant Lines and Perfect Polka Dots Textured Embossing Folders PLUS Stampin' Up! Textured Card Stock (luscious).
