ShowCASe your style challenge #11: Inspiration Challenge

Hi everyone!
Time for another challenge at showCASe your style.

Have you checked it out yet?  
You do NOT have to use Whimsy Stamps products to play along but if you do, 
the gift certificate will be more if you are the winner!
The challenge runs 2 weeks and this time it's an inspiration challenge!

 Here is how I was inspired:

I immediately thought of this adorable owl hanging from some balloons when I saw the mobile.  This owl from Hoo Loves You is perfect.  I stamped and used the coordinating die to cut him out then stamped the balloons from Happy Everything along with the little bow.  I hand drew the strings.

We'd love to see your card inspired by the photo!
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
