Blue Owl

***This is my 2nd post of the day.  Please scroll down for my One Layer Wednesday / All Things Unity post***

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to use 3 shades of a colour plus brown.  I used stamps from a few different companies today with Purple Onion Designs, Paper Smooches and Lawn Fawn all being represented here.  I paper pieced the lonely owl in 3 shades of blue and matched the sentiment to him.  I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.  The prize is a $50 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp which (given the current shopping ban) would be a fabulous thing to win!  :)
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Owl from Chubby Chums) Paper Smooches, (Branch), Purple Onion Designs, (Letters from Smitty's ABCs) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point) Stampin' Up
