Owl Miss You

Hello, friends!  Today I'm posting a card for Stamp TV's Monday Challenge, hosted by the talented Melissa Cash.  This time it is a sketch challenge with a twist to use fall colors.  Here is the sketch:

Sometimes I have a hard time seeing beyond the sketch… So I decided I wanted to find a way, even if small, to change it up in some way. 

Instead of using the long vertical rectangle, I decided to use three narrow strips of scrap paper, placed closed together to make one rectangular shape.  To add interest I cut the bottom in chevron style and replicated the same idea for the flag on the front panel.  I also added texture by embossing the background panel.  Little secret: I actually had it embossed from another project I never used it for!  What doesn't work for one project will work for another so save everything!
