First Card of the Year!!!!

Will here it is my first card of 2011!!
StampTV was having their New Release Party and one of the challenges was a color challenge, The colors to use was Kraft. and along with that, Chocolate Brown and Turquoise Sea.
I started with Kraft colored background and stamped it with Gina K stamps and embossed it with a Turquoise embossing powder. I die cut out my scalloped circle,circle and oval cookie cuter nesting, fancy tags from spellbinders. I stamped my owl, my message and my background with VersaMark watermark stamp pad. I went a little bit out of my comfort zone, this is the first time I made a card with two backgrounds!! I guess I was afraid it wouldn't look right, but I thought it turned out alright. I finished embossing my card, colored my owl, added my bow and added an embellishment that I just got from Stamp'n Up.
Hop you like it !!
