Meet Oliver the Owl

Hi all, this is my card for this weeks Sew Many Challenges #2 the theme is to use Purple, White and a splash of black and I have used Oliver the Owl.  I was thrilled to bits when I found that I was one of the 5 runner ups and won three Digital images, this is one of them.
The base paper is from Joanna Sheen's gingham pad, Oliver has been placed in a frame using MCS graphics programme, I then printed him again cut him out and placed him on top of the first image with silicone.  I coloured him with pro markers and added some embossed punched out daisy flowers with a gem in the middle of each one.  I also mounted the embossed card onto black card then added a Fred She Said flower punched out some leaves from black card and added them, then I found some black stickers in my stash and put four little black flowers in each corner ....I hope you like it and believe me the colour is purple which always looks different when a picture is taken.

This picture is a close up of the 3d effect which I hope you can see.

many thanks for looking
