The Owl and the Pumpkin

I won Challenge #179 over at The Crazy Challenge with my card My Best Friend. The prize was a Guest Design Team position for Challenge 181 and Challenge 182. This card was made for Challenge 182 and the topic for the challenge is AUTUMN GATHERINGS. The sponsor at The Crazy Challenge this week is Fresh Brewed Designs and they were kind enough to provide us with images. My image's name is Boo Who? Owl.



I colored my image with Copics and used an oval and a scallop oval diecut on the image. The sentiment is by CC Designs Rubber Stamps and the punch is by Stampin' Up. The corner diecuts are by Quik Cutz. The paper is from a paperpack by Carta Bella.  Here's a close-up of my image.


My "arrangement" consists of 3 real pinecones a moose button and a pumpkin button (both from Dress It Up and the colored acrylic leaves and glittery stamens are from Michael's. My ribbon is from my stash. Here's a close-up of my autumn arrangement.


I'd like to thank Em and the Design Team at The Crazy Challenge for giving me the opportunity to be their Guest Designer for Challenges 181 and 182. I had a great time creating cards for the challenge blog and being included with the team!
