DTGD09 Challenge Overload

Happy Friday everyone! I have a card to show you today that would make Maria proud (I think!) The Dirty Girls at Splitcoast stampers have issued challenges to the fan club members beginning yesterday. I sat down with a list of ideas for cards for the challenges and ended up with one card that fits FOUR challenges! I think that's a record for me.

Here is my card (sorry it's crooked)

(click to enlarge)

I used the Hooty-Who image from Squigglefly and printed it out on three different digital papers and one white cardstock piece. I cut the owl out of the white cardstock piece and then paper pieced the tree with the digital papers. Here's what the inside looks like

Now here are the challenges I met.
TAG ART - use some kind of tag in your creation. I printed the Yoo Hoo! onto cardstock and then punched the tags out with a punch. That also qualifies it for the CUT IT OUT challenge which is to use some kind of punch of die cut on your creation. Then I used the dew drops on the corners and googly eyes on the owl which qualifies it for the CLEARLY CREATIVE challenge to use something clear or translucent on your card. The owl qualifies it for the FLAP YOUR WINGS challenge to use something with wings on your creation. Whew!
If I had used one less designer paper on my card it would have qualified for the MASCULINE CARD challenge, but I already had my tree paper pieced before I noticed the stipulations. Oh well, it was sure fun making it and seeing how many challenges I could fit in!
You can play along too if you want! Just go here and check it out!

I thought I'd give you a heads up and let you know that Squigglefly has just marked prices down on tons of items in the store. Check out the "On Sale" category and the "99 cent Bargain Bin". There is also a "Last Chance Bin" for all images that will be discontinued in August. If there's an image you've put off getting, you might want to see if it's still going to be there after July!

Hope your day is a great one, and thanks for looking!

Great card. I love the owl. You really piled it on without making it look piled on. If it was orange you could have put it in the Pile it on challenge too. I love to see how many a card will work for. I love the way you used the digi paper to make the tree It looks Hooting good.
