Hooo's Birthday Is It? Three Challenges

I thought I would submit this card to three different challenges...Cardz TV - Cricut Cardz Challenge (Owls), The Paper Variety (Forest Friends) and Birthday Sundaes (Fall colors on a Birthday Card).

Here is my card:

(so you can can see the off-center opening)

and the inside:

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: Ivory, Two Shades of Green, Tan, Two Shades of Brown, Orange/Rust, Orange/Gold and Patterned Paper
Cricut Cartridge Everyday Pop-Up Cards Owl, page 30 (Base, Base Shift, Layer 1 Base, Layer 1
Shift and Layer 2 Shift)
Cricut Cartridge Create-A-Critter Owl, page 25 (Accessory Base and Shift)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder D'vine Swirls
Fiskars Texture PlateWoodgrain
Green, Charcoal, Ivory and Brown Chalk
Computer Sentiment
Mounting Tape

I like the way this turned out. I thought the off-center opening gives the card interest.

I am also submitting this to The Craft Spot for the Design Team Call. Wish me luck!

The weather here today is really nice. Warm, in fact. Indian summer. I should try to get outside and do some work around the house. I also have some sanding inside to do. We'll see what, if anything, gets done. lol

All you mothers, grandmothers and mothers-to be, if you get a chance to see a show called "Motherhood, The Musical", you should definitely go see it. I went last night with my best friend, Trish, and it was just SO GOOD. I laughed so hard I cried. Such an excellent show. We saw it at Society Hill Playhouse in Philadelphia.

Hope you all have a great day...enjoy
