The FIRST Heart 2 Heart Challenge | Practical Scrapper Challenge

Welcome to our very first CTMH Heart to Heart Challenge! And happy day-after Easter! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. I am going to have to celebrate Easter today, because yesterday I was in bed with a horrible migraine the ENTIRE day!!! Aghhh. But I am excited to be feeling well today for the unveiling of our color challenge: chocolate, sunflower, and sweet leaf. Today also marks the start of a new challenge at Practical Scrappers: markers.
heart to heart challenge #1 colorsI colored the stripes of the owl on the left with a sweet leaf marker and paper-pieced the eyes. For the owl on the right, I paper-pieced all the colored parts. To get the bracket-shaped piece of paper on the left of the card, I traced a card base from a Constant Campaign from last year. I forget the name of the campaign (Celebrate?), but it came w/ fun-shaped cards and lots of chocolate embellishments. If you know the name of the campaign feel free to enlighten me :)
Now you can play along, too! If you don't have these exact colors, choose something close. Be sure to use CTMH products - new or retired - and link your blog post to Mr. Linky at Heart2HeartChallenges! There's a great prize this week!

Supplies
Stamp set: You're a Hoot
Paper: Magic Moments, Daydream, Sweet leaf and chocolate cardstock
Other: Irresistibles Chipboard from the Miracle kit (ask me how you can get this kit for free), chocolate waxy flax, chocolate brads

Guess whooo loves this card? Me! Great job with the paper piecing. I don't usually think of doing that technique with solid stamps, but it looks great.

I've loved this set since it first came out...bought it and haven't done anything with it...now I have a reason to break it out and try.

Beautiful card!! Are you a lefty? I'm a righty and I think my designs show that. I would never think to put the swoopy paper on the left, but I like it and it looks really fresh & different from the same old stuff I churn out. I'm so sorry you had a migraine all day Sunday!! My hubby got one after Easter lunch. :(
