Double D - Ric Rac / Zig Zag

Hello my friends!
How was your Valentine's Day?
Were you lavished with roses & chocolate?  
Or just a lot of heart warming LOVE like I did?
Either way works for me!!  LOL
Anyways ... today begins a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog.

Team Darlene is hosting today and the theme is RIC RAC / ZIG ZAG
here's a peek at the mood board . . .

We all have patterned paper or actual ric rac that would fit this
challenge theme so why not come join in the fun!  YOU could be our winner!!
Here's what I came up:

I have had a sheet of 3D owl stickers hanging around my pegboard wall for several months and they just kind of jumped out at me today so I decided that would be the basis for my card.   Then I just started looking through my stash to see what I had available that fit the theme/board.  

I found a DCWV Basic 6x6 paper pack that fit for the background.
A wheel of OLD single zig zag stitched ribbon from Michaels.
And,  I also found I had two packs of Wrights Ric Rac ... one pink, one purple.  
I went with the purple for today's accent.

With so many OWL lovers out there today, I'm sure someone at one of my craft shows will squeal in delight when they see this card available.  Just might have to whip up a few more owl cards for the sale box too ... this was fun!

Well, that has to be about the prettiest owl I've ever seen! The flowers and ric rac are a beautiful match with the purple floral print in the owl. I bet someone will snatch this right up!

Darlene, That little owl is too cute, and I'm very glad that you pulled him down from that pegboard! I always struggle with zigzag patterns, but you're zigzag background paper is a perfect base for your scene. Thanks so much for playing along with our Celebration Challenge at Words 2 Craft By. :)

Lovely creation. Love the owl. Thank you for joining our Challenge a few weeks ago at Word Art Wednesday. We have a week left on our current Challenge and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 84:11 and it says, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Have a blessed week.
