BBTB - Happily Ever After - Owl Icon Challenge

Our most recent Bitten By The Bug Challenge was to use the owl icon that is on the Happily Ever After cartridge. I've used this cut before, and I love it, so I was happy to create with it again! Be sure to check out all of the other designer's creations on the Bitten By The Bug site. They're a hoot! (Sorry, I couldn't resist!!)


I cut my owl at 5" with Basic Grey Blush papers. She's on a 8.5 x 5.5 card. The card front is punched on the right side with my Fiskars threading water punch. The sentiment "Owl Always Love You!" was created on the computer, printed on a paper scrap, and I punched the top of the sentiment too. I used another sheet of Blush to create the border on the left side of the card. I threaded pink ribbon through one of the border punched holes, and tied it around the card front. Last, but not least, I added large googly eyes, one of Emily's gorgeous crocheted flowers, and a button for the flower center. I'm very pleased with how this card turned out. I love this owl!!

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!
