Moxie Fab World Paper Piecing

Happy Thursday all,

Here is a card that I made for the MoxieFabWorld paper piecing challenge going on for the Stamp It! Techniques Week.  I love using this little owl image for paper piecing, lots and lots of possibilities and because the little sign that he is holding is blank, you can stamp any sentiment or write your own, as I have done today.  Please note...I am not a beer drinker..(love my red wine, 'ritas and Cosmos) but have had probably 5 beers in my life!  Just never got a hankering or appreciated the taste.  Now, having grown up in Montreal, where there were a lot of Irish folk, a big St. Patrick's Day parade (St. Catherine's Street, a main street where a green stripe was painted down the center in honour of the celebration) and lots of green beer flowing, I can tell you that a lot of beer drinking was going on.  That's my inspiration for the handwritten sentiment and I am sticking with it! 
I paper pieced the little guy's wings and made a special little hat for him.
I like my little Irish owl and his custom hat...he reminds me of a parade goer lining the streets for the parade! ;)
I used three patterned papers (Flourishes  Timeless Tuesday 105 challenge) and the card is loosely based on the WMSC #34 that I used for yesterday's card.
Let me know what your take on St. Patrick's celebrations you may have experienced.
Thanks for taking a peek, Cheers!
