Owl's it Going?

Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As I am the challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges. 

Yesterday was my birthday, as most of you know one of my favorite things are Owls .... so for our challenge this week include an owl on your card. If you don't have an owl no problem, any feathered creature will do.

For my card today I used the Sizzix Owl Label Fold Along die set to create this owl gatefold card. Here is my card when it is closed. Seeing that my favorite color is blue/teal I decided to use that for the colors of this owl this time round.

The 'hello' sentiment is a die from Avery Elle.

When you open up the card it reveals three owls. The two on either side of the card are the same. 

The blue oval part of the owl was created using an oval die and Broken China Distress Oxide and then spritzed. 

I added a stamped sentiment to the middle owl.

Here is another photo of my card this time half open.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

EEEEK - this is great, made extra special with the patterned papers you chose. I had actually emailed you when I saw this card but that is when I had the wrong address. I just got the Cactus Fold-A-Long!! Saw it at CHA and HAD to have it. :-) Again - love your card, Frances.
