Whooo Goes There?

My sweet friend Sheila, at She's A Sassy Lady did a great Gypsy Made Simple tutorial of an A2 wide card with an owl welded to it.  Well, I love using my Gypsy.  I got it for my birthday last October.  And I have not used a cartridge in my Cricut since.  I tend to take my Gypsy with me where ever I go.  (Just in case I have the time and need to create something with it.)  It has also made my life easier making things for my classroom.  I just take my Gypsy to school with me instead of a bunch of cartridges.  I have a Cricut in my classroom as well as one at home.

Now, back to my project.  After watching Sheila's tutorial and seeing her cute cards, I decided to make one myself.

Sheila used an owl from the Hoot and Holler cart.  But, since I do not have that one, I just found me a cute little owl from the Give A hoot cartridge.  And here it is.  I used a pale olive green to cut the card base.  And the background paper is from a Glitz Design pack.  The paper used to create the owl is from My Mind's Eye.  
I used a few gold balls to add a little bling along with some leaf dimensional stickers.  And I tied a ribbon and bow to the card that matches the card base.  
The inside of the card has the Glitz Paper for the background.  I added a sentiment suing a stamp from The Oriental Trading Company.  And I finished the inside with some more of the dimensional leaves.  

Thanks Sheila, for the great inspiration!  You always share such great ideas.
