How the HOOT are you?

My muse is working overtime today! This is my third post of the day, maybe she'll take a nap tonight????
Made this card for Cuttlebug Challenge #39, Owl Flourish.

Take the colors given: turquoise, orange and lime green as inspiration
Create a woodsy outdoor project, using woodsy animals (no snakes!), use twigs, pebbles anything from nature.

So, I found this great K&Co paper, sweet berry and used it as my starting point. Thought about this project all day- literally. There is some FAB talent on this site and I felt that my project had to be up to snuff. Used a cinnamon stick for the twig- hehehe!
cut the bird out and the owl out of some paper/cardstock and glued them onto the twig.
I stamped some leaves 2x and cut out. For dimension and depth of field, glued one behind and in front. Added the owl and bird to make them look like they just flew onto the branch. Glued rhinestones on the eyes for some bling factor. Cuttlebug (flower?) folder in the background to make it "forest-y like (is that a word???)" and made up my own saying, using the computer and hand drew the word balloon.

I am super happy with the final product! It really is 3-D IRL, but buttons, ribbon and twine, gave it the final touch.

Have a great evening!
