A Zesty Owl

I had one hour this morning to be creative so I had to challenge myself to make a simple card as I do not work very quickly at all so this was a challenge in itself.  I decided to have another go at The Play Date Cafe challenge.
I really like the Zesty orange and green combined with the grey.
This is my second entry this week so I thought I would create a Zesty owl from felt and as I have added plenty of buttons I am also entereing this for The Sunday Stamper challenge which this week is to use BUTTONS in your artwork.
The swirl is an old Fancy Pants stamp which has been stamped with DI pumice stone, a new favourite of mine and the WISH sentiment is one of Wendy Vecchi's.
Thanks for stopping by, your comments are much appreciated. Tracy x x

Hi Tracy
You have been busy, these colours really inspired you! I love both of your creations.
I have not decided yet what to do.
I love buttons too and use them a lot.
Pumice stone is my favourite colour and I love grey anyway.
Fabulous work Tracy, as ever
Have a lovely afternoon!
