The Owl and the Pussycat

Good morning my lovelies, I couldn't resist combining the gorgeous owl and pussycat stamps from the latest Chocolate Baroque release, Autumn Fairies. 

I made the background with PanPastels and distress inks and cut an aperture in the centre. The owl and cat were stamped on vellum and embossed with black detail EP.I've added some sparkle to the cat's wings with glamour dust. On the back of the vellum, I masked a moon and then created a misty sky with PanPastels. To finish off I've added some seam binding ribbon, a flower and a little star charm.

i'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz: favourite colours (pinks and purples for me)
