Hoo's Having a Birthday?

The summer prior to my last year of teaching, I decided that I would do something that I'd always wanted to do - give my classroom a theme!   I chose 'owls' and had a ball decorating, labeling and embellishing.  Since I had 40+ Kinders, I used every Cricut owl image I could find.  What I didn't anticipate was all the cute little owl themed gifts the parents found for Teacher Appreciation Day and the holidays!   Fun!!!!

The challenge over at Bitten By The Bug 2, this week, is to use an owl on your project.  Using 'All Images' on Design Space, I searched for an owl that I hadn't ever used and I found one on the CTMH Artiste cart.  He is such a  colorful party animal that I needed to put him on a birthday card.

The trifold card comes from Wild Card and is cut at a height of 5 inches.   The owl on the front comes from Live Simply, and the sentiment, from Hoot n Holler.  I had to leave the outside clean and simple because I wanted to use my Explore to write on the inner part of the card. 

The inner liner paper actually has a couple of owls on it but unfortunately, they got covered up!  And, the paper is so busy that the party confetti I cut  disappeared into the background.  A scattering of sequins saved the day.

 This was such a fun challenge.  Pop over to BBTB2 and admire the variety of owls that the DT utilized. : )    Thanks for visiting with me today.   Christine  : )
