TSG175--no designer paper owl

     I got this project done a little earlier that I expected to this week so I'm going to go ahead and share it with you.
     It's time for a new challenge at There She Goes and this week our challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week, Kim O! She has challenged us to make a card or project without using any patterned paper…she sure knows how to hit us where it hurts, yes? LOL!!   Boy did she!  No designer papers!  Waaaa!  LOL  Thanks goodness for punches and embossing folders.  I've used one of the adorable owls from the "You're a Hoot" set.  I almost gave him rhinestone studded glasses so he'd look like Elton John Owl. 
     To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project without using patterned paper, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (October 8th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
     By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated. 
     You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges!  You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG175 so we can check out your beautiful work!
      I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cards For Men--animals
Eureka Stamps--friendship
Kaboodle Doodles--colors of autumn
Cupcake Inspirations--photo inspiration
Crafting For All Seasons--things with wings
Shopping Our Stash--fur or feathers

     Hope you have a great day!
