Whoot Whoot...Celebrate

Hi Everyone!


Wow, Is it really Friday today? Where did this week go? I have had NO time this week to craft. So this card is actually from last weekend and I just added the final touches on it. I created this for a few challenges and I missed one :( Anyhow, I actually had a little inspiration for this card, it was from one of my SUPER talented bloggy friends. Miss Cindy from Cindy's Scraptastic Designs. Now I'm probably crazy creating a card using Cindy's design, because she is such an AMAZING crafter but I just loved this card (Click here to see it) Gorgeous right! I really wanted to create a card with a little owl in a tree. So here is mine! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
I used a Sizzix Tim Holtz embossing plate Bricked & Woodgrain set to create the tree like background. I cut a shape in the middle using my gypsy. Can you guess what shape I used....it's an apple turned on it's side and stretched until I like the way it looked.

Visiting from Jaihart. Like the cut out & embossing. I made a couple Owl cards recently and used Spellbinders for the cut outs. Had not thought to use a Cricut cut. Thanks for sharing.
