Cricut 360 Challenge #4- The Great Outdoors

Yeah- it's Friday again and that means another Cricut 360 Challenge.
This week the challenge is create a card or layout with the great outdoors in mind.

I went straight to my Camp Out Cartridge and found a great moon, owl and tree branch.
Yes, you are correct. That is not the owl from the Camp Out cartridge.
When I started cutting and piecing everything together the owl I had chosen just did  not have the feel I wanted - almost looked too scary.

So I started searching my gypsy for owls and found this adorable one on the Sentimentals cart.
I trimmed off his tail and glued it behind the branch so he would look more dimensional sitting on the tree branch. I then put pop dots behind the owl body and more behind his eyes- I wanted them really to stand out. 
I am happy with my little owly friend.

Please hope over to Cricut 360 and check out all the other inspiration projects and please give this challenge a try. I would love to see what you come up with. 

Here's how I did it...
5"5" card base from craft paper
All other paper is from my scrap stash
Moon cut at 4" from Camp Out
Branch/layers cut at 3" from Camp Out
Owl/layers cut at 3.21" from Sentimentals
Martha Stewart bakers twine
Chalk and doodles with my gel pen
Sticker beads for eyes
Sentiment on from MPS Biggie Punnies
