Owl Miss You - DTC #121 Punch It Out

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble #121 "Punch It Out" which requires using at least one die cut. Twisted Sister's optional twist is to "include wood / woodgrain in your project... so what a great background for this owl die and also meet the requirement of Use Your Stuff "Wood / Woodgrain".  

When I saw the Try Stampin' on Tuesdays Sketch Challenge #573 it fit my need for clean and simple and the owl die was perfect to create a shaker card.  The owl die was cut using the woodgrain design paper and backed the owl with black cardstock. Next layer was a pretty patterned paper which gave an illusion of sky and hills scenery in the background. Added the star sprinkles and adhered to the card base.  Pretty, simple and met all the requirements.  

Thing 1:  says, "National Punch Day (Sept 20) is about one of three things. Can you guess which two we are celebrating? 1. A sweet drink that is ladled from a punch bowl, 2. The kind of punch that you dole out with your fists, or 3. a crafting tool?"  Thing 1 is giving a second chance if you have included comments in our Challenge post or in your post next to link what drink you took to your scrapping space.   

MINE is Coffee with Cinnamon Bun Creamer until the Pumpkin Spice Creamer is available in the store.  But I keep it furthest from my crafting work space.  

However, I have to share my scrap space with Cleo... a heavy crystal glass of water filled to the brim and right next to my work space.  She is so sure footed and maneuvers around my desk with no problem knocking things over (quite a lady). In the two years this has been placed here the only time it was spilled was my clumsy hand hit the glass and it spilled, but luckily away from my project I was working on.  I keep a plastic bottle of water on my desk near my coffee for a refill.
