Woohooo! Way to Go

What an awesome night!  Dinner out, just Katie & me, at Chili's.  Came home and watched American Idol.  The kids/contestants did an amazing job tonight.  Now that Katie's in bed for the night I can finish my post.

I had two challenges in mind while creating this card.  The first is called Pop It Up! by Your Next Stamp #42, and the second is a color challenge from Off The Wall Craftiness #53.

I fussy cut the leaves and popped them up with 3/16" mini glue dots, and popped up the Owl, including his eyes and beak with Mini Pop Dots.  Not sure if you can tell from the picture above, so here is a side view.

I hope my design provides you with some inspiration to go forth and create.  There is still time to join in the fun for both of these challenges, and there are great prizes.

Thanks for stopping by.
