Get Sketchy!

I'm barely getting this in just before the deadline, so I'll keep it short and sweet. I've actually never played along with any of the Moxie Fab World challenges before, even though I'm a regular reader of Cath's fun blog. But when I saw her Get Sketchy Challenge to use Kim Kesti's sketch from the Go To Sketches issue of PaperCrafts, that little "talk bubble" thing-a-ma-jig got my creative juices flowing. Here's a look at the sketch:
And here's what I came up with (I decided to Get Hybrid-y):


So I realize that owls are like, soooo last fall...but seriously - do those little guys ever really go out of style? I mean really - isn't that just the cutest thing you've ever seen!?!? See, I had just finished re-organizing lots of my digi goodies on the new computer and knew I needed to get some use out of these old faves by Crystal Wilkerson, and it turned out they were PERFECT for this sketch!! Everything on this card (other than the Kraft cardstock and the machine stitching) is printed digital goodness from Crystal's November 2009 Collection, available at JessicaSprague.com.

That plaid paper is from the November 2009 Paper Pack:
That woodgrain paper is some bonus paper from November's {Eye Candy} Elements Pack:
The talk bubble and word art is from the November Collection Word Art & Labels Collab Kit:And finally, that ADORABLE owl digi "sticker"? It's from the November 2009 Happy Little Owls Rub-Ons and Stickers:

So that's it from me tonight!! Joel and I have the house to ourselves as Dean is spending the night with TuTu (my Mom), so I'm spending the evening in my craft room catching up on some Young and Restless - man, what the heck is UP with this Sarah chick? Just when we have a nice peaceful 5 years or so without Sheila - BAM! she's back. (well, sorta).

Great colors on this card. I would love to know how you track your downloadable digital kits? I had been following someone elses advice but I never know who's kits I'm using doing that.
