2S4Y Sketch with some of my new toys!

Hi all!  Happy Monday!  I am so excited to share some new goodies from the brand spankin' new Stampin'Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog.  How adorable is this little owl?  He's a cute new punch that I had lots of fun playing with this past weekend.  I was actually away for most of the weekend but, Sunday night was filled with stamping and playing with my new toys.  This is the card I created for this week's 2S4Y Sketch Challenge.  Here's a look at the sketch:
I was intrigued with the circle element, and after much deliberation, I decided to incorporate the new owl punch.  Here's a look at my full card:
Now, wouldn't you say that this is such a happy summer looking card?  I love the colors and paper - I used the new whimsical Play Date DSP, and then I created that fun ribbon border with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch...it is too cute!!  For the sentiment, I used the Perfect Punches stamp set - and as you can imagine, all the sentiments correspond to a punch!  Here's the recipe for you:
