Who's having a birthday? A new Bitten By The Bug challenge

Hi everyone! Sure hope you enjoyed your weekend! It was cloudy, breezy, and cool here today. PERFECT day for crafting (and laundry) . It's time for a new challenge from Regina over at Bitten By The Bug. This week, she asked us to use the owl from the Wild Card cartridge. I used her as is, a shaped card. (You know how I love shaped cards!) I dressed her up with some pretty Basic Grey paper Bittersweet collection (love this stuff) and the cardstock is Bazzill. Added some pretty pink silk ribbon with a Daisy D's button and dressed up her breast feathers with some tiny pearls from Kaiser, and she was pretty well set. I REALLY like the envelope with this card. What a special touch, huh??

Be sure and hop over to Bitten By The Bug to check out the other fantastic creations the rest of the DT members put together. You're in for a real treat! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! HUGS!

Oh, Sharon.... I love, love, love this card. I'm going to check out the others at Bitten By The Bug. and I need to find out what the Wild Card cartridge is. I'm guessing the Cricut (which I don't have). I've been collecting owls for 27 years or so now. Thanks for helping me start my day with a smile.
