Fantabulous Cricut Card Challenge

 For the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #84 For the Birds I used the owl from the Create a Critter and the Joys of the Season Cartridge for all the Christmas images.
The outline for this challenge was to create a project with a bird (or anything to do with birds, such as a birdcage) on it. 
The card base is 5 x 6 1/2" from a white cardstock.  Mat 1 is cut at 4 3/4 x 6 1/4" and is cut from a blue cardstock base.  Mat 2 is cut from patterned paper at 4 1/2 x 6".
The owl is from Create a Critter cartridge and is cut at 3" using all layers. I thought purple would be a beautiful contrast against the snowflake patterned paper.  The tree is also cut at 3" but I did not add the leaves as I wanted to be like a silhouette. I cut the phrase from white patterned paper at 1" .  It is meant to be a pun on the popular phrase "ho ho ho".
The stockings and santa hat were cut from the Joys of the Season cartridge at 1".
I added some rhinestones to the blackout "O"s.
Hope you like it!
