Owl Card (BBTB Challenge: Wild Card Owl Challenge)

I was sooooo bummed that the BBTB Challenge this week was to use the owl diecut on the Cricut Wild Card cartridge...which I don't have.  :(  The examples were sooooooo cute and I sooooooo wanted to play along. 
.
But, I decided to play anyway!!!  This owl is from the Storybook cartridge and pretty cute, too...it obviously doesn't meet the requirement for the challenge, but it made me feel better than I could make an owl card and pretend to be as cool as everyone else!!!  :) 
.
I made a pink card base and used a brown and pink polka dot print on top.  I cut out lighter pink cs cricles for the eyes and used some jumbo "eyeball" brads for the eyes.  I cut out the dandelion diecut from the Storybook cartridge and cut it in half and used them as eyelashes.  Then I went crazy with the stickles and highlighted the darker pink dots on the print, the beak, the eyelashes, the ears and the toenails.  I finished with a bow and flowers, dotted with a rhinestone.  It's obviously a girl...  :)
