Two Challenges in One- The Great Outdoors


Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a card that I created for two different challenges.  One challenge is at Bitten By the Bug 2, with the theme: The Great Outdoors. 

...and the second challenge is at Get Creative Challenge Blog with an Anything Goes challenge. 

So I created this card.

 I used pattern paper from Echo Park and cut with my Cricut from the Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to My Heart for the tree the owl is sitting on.  

The sentiment is from Hero Arts which I stamped with black ink.

I then colored the owl with my Copics:

Owl: E39, E37, E35

Branch: E29, E27

Leaves: G94, G24

The great outdoors for me is camping and hearing the owls at night.

Now it is your turn.  Create an Outdoor project using your Cricut and join the challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 or complete any project and join the challenge at Get Creative Challenge Blog.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment. 


  1. Wonderful outdoors creation. Owls are a fav of my daughter. I like Owls as well. We had an Owl on our backyard fence a couple yrs ago and we watched it pick up a mouse/rat which we appreciate Owls for doing.
