Color Splash for Our Creative Corner

Hello there! Well after a busy week, here it is Saturday and it's time for a new weekly challenge at Our Creative Corner. This week, the lovely Tui Nathan is our fabulous hostess and she has a fun challenge for us. 

Here are the challenge details from Tui: 
"Black and White with a splash of Colour" - create a card or paper craft item with the colours black and white, and then add a splash of colour of your choosing! Which way will you go .... classic and elegant, modern and contemporary, clean and simple or shabby chic ... the choice is yours so have fun and be creative!
For my card, I turned to my trusty Owl Builder Punch. I have seen SO many cards on Pinterest lately featuring this little guy, I was itching to get punchy with him again. I have always loved the sentiments from the Perfect Words stamp set (SU! Hostess set) and once I selected RED as my choice for a "splash" of color, I decided that one of these tiny owls needed to take center stage. What better way, then with some sparkle and shine...while his little owl friends look on in admiration. Haha! The sentiment and those little eyes say it all for this "superstar  owl", eh? He really stands out in a crowd! All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of this post. 
Thanks for stopping by today. I sure hope you can join us this week at Our Creative Corner and have some fun making a "splash" with this fun challenge. Please stop by and see what the rest of the gals on the Design Team have created for inspiration this week:
