Night Owl and a Special Promotion!

I have a bunch of Halloween ideas in my head but getting them put to cardstock is much easier said than done. But here's one that did make it to paper. It's not exactly how I envisioned it, perhaps I need to sponge some more color around the moon to make it look like it's a night sky. I debated for a couple of days whether or not to post this card. Believe me when I say there are plenty of cards and projects that don't make the cut to get up here. This one was right on the border, but in the end I decided that I would post it. It's certainly not my favorite card but I certainly don't hate it either. I love the idea of the owl's shadow at night in the moon. It could use a lot of improvement but I'll just do that on the next one :)

So what do you think? Needs some more color I think and the ribbon just looks wonky down along the bottom. I'm very pleased with the sponging I did on the moon, darker on the top and lighter on the bottom, that looks great in my opinion.

I think my stamping mojo has taken a vacation this week, or maybe it's just because I'm so tired. I spent all afternoon today getting ready for my Christmas Card Stamp a Stack. I'm making huge progress on it but it's wearing me out. When I was pregnant with Logan I didn't work at all, certainly not this far along in the pregnancy. My business wasn't as established as it is now. And now prepping for a class or workshop just wipes out all my energy, or is it the baby that's stealing my energy? Thankfully I had the good sense to start prepping for this class a couple weeks in advance!
