Cuttlebug Challenge #39 & Mojo Monday Madness

This week Cuttlebug has a very fun challenge-- it is to create a woodsy outdoor project, card, layout or whatever strikes your fancy, using woodsy animals and anything from nature such as twigs, pebbles, leaves, etc. They also included a great color combo as an added component this week. Head on over to get in on this one!
Although I knew what stamps and elements I was using, I needed a little help with a layout for my card. So I hopped on over to Mojo Monday and... whalah! Check out the sketch and contest going on there too!

This is a Birthday card for a very dear friend, who is a retired high school teacher. The inside sentiment is: ... to a wise old bird!

Card Details ~
Stamps: Owl from "Studio g" at Michael's and Leaves from "Big Lots"
Ribbon: Lime green grossgrain and Turquoise felt butterflies from Michael's
Cuttlebug Folders: "Swiss Dots" and "Birds & Swirls"
Card stock: Solid colors from"Meadow Fashion Colors" from Michael's and the Patterned Orange is from Note cards in my stash.
Brads (owl's eyes) from "Special Moments" and the sprig is from a dried flower arrangement

Thanks so much for stopping by and I love hearing what you think :^) Have a great weekend!
