Color Challenge - Cardz TV Stamps

Happy Friday everyone!  It is challenge day over at Cardz TV!  I love these days, because I get to play with Mary's amazing stamps - I can always find the perfect sentiment, not matter the challenge!  Today Mary challenged us to create a  project using only RED, WHITE and BLACK.  Here is what I came up with:

I decided to make a card set.  Each of the owls is from Hoot'n'Holler.  Aren't they super cute??

  GASP!!  I just realized I didn't doodle on the owls!!  I will have to do that before I give these away....  The doodling I did do is done with my Sakura Jelly Roll pen.

The mat they are on is from Elegant Edges - one of my go to cartridges.

The patterned paper is from Creative Memories and all of the cardstock is from Michaels, as is the ribbon.  The buttons are from Walmart.

The sentiments on each of these cute cards is from Cardz TV's "For the Birds" sentiment set.  It is perfect for this cartridge!  I stamped it with my Versa Mark ink.  You can find this great stamp set HERE.  

So, I decided this cute set, needed a cute box to house it :)  A couple of years ago I found a card box created by the talented Momo.  I have used it many times, it is fun and easy and always turns out perfectly.

Isn't it cute?  You can find the directions for "Momo's card box" HERE.  I used Cardz TVs "Christmas Joy" stamp set for the sentiment.  You can buy your own HERE.

Here is a picture of the box open and filled with my little card set.  I made the box with some Bazzil card stock and the owl and mat are made with Recollections paper from Michael's.

Hop on over to Cardz TV, see what all my talented DT sisters came up with to inspire you, and play along with us.  The challenge starts today and ends February 7th at noon.  One lucky person will win a set of Cardz TV Stamps of their very own.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!
