Santa Owl in a Knit Vest

I have a fun little card to share today.   I dug out my little Stampin'Up Owl punch and made him a Santa for Christmas!  I hand drew and cut his hat and popped it on his head with foam dots and perched him on a piece of mistletoe.  The lovely mistletoe and 'Mwah' sentiment are from Waltzingmouse Festive Foliage.
My card was inspired by many challenges this week.
I used my owl for the Merry Monday Challenge
I used red and white on my Santa Owl  for the Fusion Challenge - inspired by the photo
And my owl is wearing a home made knit sweater vest with a heart on it.  The heart is from Nordic Winter from Waltzingmouse.
for the Cas-ology Challenge - Cue Card KNIT
I haven't put any sentiment inside my card yet -  I may use it as a Thank You note or it could work for a winter birthday!

Stamps:  Festive Foliage, Nordic Winter - Waltzingmouse
Paper:  white, blueberry sky, simply chartreuse, pure poppy, true black - PTI, DP Sn@p  Simple Stories.
Ink:  Archival Jet Black, Ranger Distress Peeled Paint, Memento Rhubarb Stalk
Accessories:  foam dots, extra large 2 step owl punch - SU

Your wee owl does look so cute in his sweater, although, I think he has had a little too much egg nog looking at his eyes. Very cute. Love the Mistletoe. Thank you so much for joining us at Merry Monday.
