Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge -Sketch 2

I always love a good sketch, whether i am sketching a drawing or using a sketch for my cards or scrapbook. There is always a delight when i wake up to a new sketch that has me excited, and this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge has done that. It's a simple sketch with so many ways it could go, from patterned paper to a great solid color cardstock. I knew just what paper to use, after playing with Dream pop paper pack and creating my samples for the June workshop i came up with great color combos that are screaming to be made in to art. 
Here is the sketch for this week 

This is my take on this weeks sketch 2.
This color combo works perfectly with the pale wood shapes , a hint of black, slate and it all came together nicely. Owls just fit in anywhere.
