{FTH} Sketch w/ a tWiSt #82: Owl and Pumpkins

Good morning everyone-
Hope you are having a great weekend!  My son is in town for a few days and I am looking forward to some me and son time!!!  I am delighted to have this moment!!

Today, I am sharing a card I created using this weeks sketch w/ a tWist over at From the Heart. 
This weeks tWisT is to either use washi tape or strips of paper.  Of course I chose strips of paper, but went along with the color combination. 

I am using this gorgeous image called: Owl and Pumpkins
I had intended to make the background darker, but decided to stick closer to the color combination. 
I struggle with color swatches, so it was a  good way to practice. 
I printed the image twice.  I colored one image and fussy cut the image out.  The other image, I used a Spellbinder die to frame and sponge the background scene, before laying the colored image on top. 
Here is this weeks challenge card. You still have some time to join the fun.

I would like to share this card in the following challenge(s):
