Crazy 4 Challenges ~ Birthday Owls

Good morning friends~ This is my last post as guest designer for Crazy 4 Challenges and what a fun time it's been!  Thanks so much Frances and all the talented designers for having me.  It's been a blast to join you all!

Anyone who knows Frances from Stamp Owl's Studio, knows that she loves owls.  She also just celebrated a birthday so this week's challenge card is one that  I sent to her for her special day.  I hope she gets it before this post goes live, but if not, your card is on it's way to Australia!  Hope your birthday was wonderful Frances!

I made a pop up card for this fun challenge and of course I included some very colorful party owls.

This is the front of the card.  Nothing too showy because the inside is supposed to be the center of attention.

I used Elizabeth Craft Designs Lots of Pops to create the pop up feature.  Then I added owls from Clearly Besotted, the fun and quirky cake from SugarPea Designs Bring On The Cake, Pinpoint Balloons from Memory Box and the banner pennants  from Lots of Pops.

Just look at all this dimension!!  The ideas on how you could use this pop up are endless and it couldn't get any easier to make a fun filled pop up card.

I hope you'll take the time to visit the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog and join in on the fun!  Don't forget to wish Frances a Happy Birthday while you're there!!

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:
Double D Challenges ~ Things That Fly

4 Crafty Chicks ~ Punches Or Dies
Simon Says Wednesday ~ Using Dies or Punches
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
