Owl on a Branch

I'm on a roll trying (once again) to finish all my cards for Christmas.  Every year I say I'm going to do better and then end up rushing around trying to finish them.  I did start a little earlier this year though so that's good.

I guess this is called one layer - on a layer!  I used a red Wink of Stella on the berries and paper pieced his hat.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and the owl and branch are from Hero Arts.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Less Is More (sketch).

I forgot all about entering this in the challenge at Rudolph's so will pop it over there too for their anything goes Christmas challenge.

Thanks for stopping by......
Lynn
