Whoo's Prettie Birthday Is It?

Whoo's birthday are we celebrating today? Whoo whoo?! Why... it's our very own StampOwl, Frances's Birthday! In addition to our Wednesday challenge, we're hopping for her birthday! Now, if you didn't get here from Wendy's blog, be sure to hop back over to Prettie Mama Christie's blog so you don't miss out on having a hoot of a good time today!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRANCES!!!

This week the challenge is hosted by Jana Weaver.

Jana’s challenge, in honor of Frances' birthday, is to find inspiration for your card from some type of owl (real or fictional) and include a picture of your inspiration with your post.

Now most of you know that I have been collecting all things owls since I was a little girl. I LOVE owls! Surprisingly, this challenge really got me thinking hard and I couldn't decide what to do! Instead of looking at my collection for inspiration, I decided to just pick one of three favorite owls in real life. I love the Snowy Owls and Sooty Owls... but the one I chose today for my inspiration is the Spotted Owl.




I used the sketch from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch 61 for the layout and included this card in the Cupcake Craft Challenge 83 (food & drink):



 I used Make A Wish for this week's card...
I tried to capture the brown and white of the owl.







This week the Design Team are using “Lady Sophia” and “Make A Wish”. Both sets are on special in the Pretties Boutique for one week only. 20% off!!

Come play along with us! Create a card/project using the challenge above and any Paper Pretties stamp set(s) you have. Upload your project to the Paper Pretties Gallery. Be sure to add it to the Weekly Challenges category and use keyword PWC96.

Hop on over to see what kind of owl inspiration and fabulous project Jennifer has put together for today's challenge!

Don't forget to stop by with Frances and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

That image is adorable - and I love how you left the card quite plain so the image is the eyecatcher!

Thanks for playing with Cupcake Craft this week!
