Watercoloured Fun

This card was totally inspired by the one Jennifer posted on the Simon Says Stamp blog.  Everything is watercoloured on my card - the owl, branch, star and stripy background .... though I can't help thinking that the splodge underneath my owl just looks like he's having a piddle. Hahahahaha.
Great fun, I enjoyed having a go at this card :)

Image and sentiment from Paper Smooches.  The star is a PS die cut ... I just coloured slightly inside the lines and then added the faux stitching.
