Owl Card for Challenge Goodness!!!

Good evening my crafting friends and thanks for stopping by!  I have a hooty-licious card to share with you tonight for more awesome challenges!

I used Basic George and Design Studio for the shape of the card.  The floral corner border and pretty little owl come from Disney's Happily Ever After Cartridge.  I ran the top layer of the owl through my Sizzix Texture Boutique and Swiss Dots Cuttle bug folder, after I had ran a blue Stampin' Up Ink Pad along the front of the folder ( the coloring difference is more noticeable in person, but this awesome technique came from Joy Life Blog ).  I also added white diamond stickles to the flowers on the corner border.  The flowers on the top left come from my stash and I sprayed them with white pearl mist for some shimmer, and added black brads to the center.  I used MPS Everyday Sayings stamp set for the Sentiment at the bottom, and I finished the card with light blue shimmer chalking ( which sadly also doesn't show up well when photographed ) around the top half of the card.

Awesome Challenges to be entered:

MPS challenge - use a feathered friend
FCCB Challenge #49 - make a shaped card besides square or rectangle
Getting Cricky With K Andrews - make an Owlish project
Kleirrs Kreation: National Scrapbook Month

Happy Crafting!
