Monochrome owl

Oh dear, it's Monday again. I think a four day working week would be much more compatible with also having a life, this pesky two day weekend business isn't nearly enough. It's only enough for the bare essentials, like cleaning and grocery shopping but I want a bit of luxurious "nothing to do" time. Just sitting and relaxing, sipping a cocktail or hot chocolate depending on the weather. Maybe reading a book. I haven't read a book in ages, does anyone have any good suggestions? Luckily I made time yesterday to put together this quick card though.

The inspiration for today's card comes from the blue owl in the inspiration photo from ShowCASe Your Style. The layout is inspired by this week's CAS(E) this Sketch. I'm also linking up with Addicted to CAS where the theme is "Cute", Addicted to Stamps "Make Your Mark" and Paper Smooches "Anything Goes".

Card: Dark blue card from my stash, white 300 gsm card, Tim Holtz Chipped Sapphire Core'dinations card
Stamps: Paper Smooches Chubby Chums, Stampin' Up Hardwood
Ink: Tim Holtz Faded Jeans, Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black
Colouring: Copics B00, B06, B41, B45, white gel pen, Stampin' Write marker Pacific Point
Other: Papermania Seafoam White embossing powder, Stampin' Up Banner punch

Oh, if only we could grab at least an extra weekend day, how fab would that be. As for your card, loving this in the blue tones, and your owl has a cheeky look about him too. Thanks for sharing at ATSM this week, Anita x
