Blinky Owl and Blossom Tree Branch

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
Happy Saturday Friends! I am thrilled to share another one of my cards, using some stamps and SVG Files from the New Release - Spring 2016 Collection.
This is Blinky Owl (SS014), Blinky Owl SVG File-point 7 (SS014SVG), Blossom Tree Branch (UU003), Blossom Tree Branch SVG File-point 7 (UU003SVG), Missing You (FF015), and Missing You SVG Files-point 7 & 14 (FF015SVG).  Such a cutie, and so easy to colour and cut too!
I started by using my Cricut machine and cut the point 7 size of the SVG Blinky Owl file and Blossom Tree Branch file on watercolour paper.  The sentiment was also cut using both the point 7 (stamped sentiment portion) & 14 files (for layering the sentiment).  The image was then stamped with a Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad using my Misti Stamping Tool to ensure accuracy for the placement of the image inside the cut out portion of my cardstock.  Black embossing powder was applied then heated.  These images were coloured with Tombow Markers and water.  After the image was all coloured and dry, Glossy Accents was applied on the Owl's beak and feet for some added shine.   
For the card base, I chose some SU Marina Mist cardstock.  White cardstock was used to punch a bunch of clouds using a handheld punch.  The sentiment was stamped also using the Misti Stamping Tool, along with a Versamark Ink Pad and White Embossing Powder then heated.  The main images were both adhered to the card using glue dots.  The sentiment was mounted using foam tape to give some added dimension to this card.  To finish it off, a small ribbon bow was placed on the owl.  A Zig-Wink of Stella clear glitter pen was used to cover the clouds along with some Crushed Pineapple Stickles were also applied on the centres of the blossoms to add some glitter.  It maybe a little difficult to see this in the photo, but it does add that little bit of sparkle to this card!
Supplies Used:
InkTombow Markers - 985, 025, N95, N65, N75, 879, 055 and 723. Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad, Versamark Ink Pad, Black & White Embossing Powder.
Paper - SU Marina Mist and White Cardstock.
Misc - Misti Stamping Tool, Cricut Personal Cutter, Glossy Accents, Zig-Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, Crushed Pineapple Stickles, Cloud Punch, Ribbon Bow (Dollar store), Water brush, Foam Tape and Glue Dots.
