FCCB #203 - Bye Bye Birdie

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge at FCCB!

Challenge #203 Bye Bye Birdie

This Weeks Sponsor

The Robin's Nest

~This Weeks Challenge~
Bye Bye Birdie
Create a project with a bird on it.

One of my dear friends has a birthday tomorrow and she loves owls.  As I was flipping through some of my handbooks looking at different bird images for this challenge, I came across this fun owl image on Kate's ABCs.  My girlfriend loves owls, so I thought this would be perfect for her.

I thought the shape of this image lent itself perfectly to a circle or square shaped card, instead of the usual A2 sized cards I usually make.  I found this fun scalloped circle shaped card on Birthday Bash.

It's hard to tell in the pictures, but I added Glossy Accents to the stars and the whites of the owl's eyes.  I tied a double bow with crinkle ribbon and added a twine bow and button to finish off my card.

Be sure to join in the fun at FCCB this week and link up your projects that include a bird!  Remember, to qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.  Thanks for stopping by!
