Adorable Owls Birthday

Ready for another Festive Friday challenge?   What is the Festive Friday challenge?  The Festive Friday challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that is inspired by a holiday/festivity.  An Inspo list of 10 items is created using the festivity as its inspiration.  To play in the challenge you need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project and enter it in the Festive Friday gallery.  We love seeing what you choose from the Inspo list and create.


I chose from the list Red, Hat, Rhinestones, and Texture.


I am still on the go and working with just a handful, ok more like an armful of supplies.  I knew I could work red into my project since I love the color and then I remembered that one of the Adorable Owls (free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-A-Bration) is wearing a hat!  It is a cute little party hat and would be perfect for my card.   I colored the sweet birthday owl using Soft Suede, Real Red, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party Stampin' Blends.


I couldn't find an embossing folder that I wanted to use so I decided to create my own texture by adding die cut hearts.  The hearts are from the Give It A Whirl dies.  This die set not only has the parts to make a fun interactive card it has so many other dies like hearts, stars, and clouds.  


I added the sentiment from the Adorable Owls set and thought I could accent it with Red Rhinestones.  I went from wondering how I was going to use 3 items from the Inspo List to using 4!

Time to check out what the rest of the Design Team created for Challenge #FF126.  


We look forward to seeing what you create using the Inspo List.  Be sure to add your entry into the gallery!

Such a sweet card, Sharon! I always want to case your cards. The heart background is perfect for your darling birthday owl. :)


Thank you for the adorable owl! I like him! ... the owl!

Your owl in his party hat is adorable, and I love the way you used the die cut hearts for the background!


❤️❤️❤️ it! I'm inspired - I'm going to try a Festive Friday! Thanks for the nudge 😏


Sharon, I love that you used red on red to create the texture with the hearts. Your little owl in his stitched oval is just too darned cute! I love this card. hugs jaydee
