CTD200 - Look Hoo's Celebrating!

Hello everyone!!!  I'm excited to be this week's hostess over at the Color Throwdown Challenge because we're celebrating our 200th Challenge!  In honor of our 200th Challenge we have a little fun planned for this week.  Each team member of the CTD is offering blog candy and they'll be one lucky winner per blog.  All you have to do is leave a comment on each of our blogs and play along with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge to be eligible to win.  The featured Stamper and winners will be announced next week Tuesday (you must participate in the CTD Challenge in order to have a chance to win).
While looking for an inspiration photo for our celebration challenge I stumbled across this fun picture with all of it's cute cupcakes, owl, buttons and ric-rack and knew I found what I was looking for.  I decided to create a coordinating birthday card and one of my Pillow Box Owl treat boxes that I had designed last year, you can see variations of this owl treat box here and here



Below you'll see a photo of the supplies I used to create this new version of my Pillow Box Owl which is inspired by the cake topper in the inspiration photo above.  I used everything that is pictured here along with the Sizzix Pillow Box die, some Scor-Tape and some good glue.  For the feathers on the tummy of the owl I die cut several of the Papertrey Ink Heart borders in three colors, creamy carmel, close to cocoa and chocolate chip and layered them together with glue then using a circle Nestabilities die I die cut all but the bottom.
 
Supplies for Pillow Box Owl Treat Box: SU Sizzix Pillow Box die, Large oval punch, 3/4" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, 5 Petal Flower punch (for beak), Small Heart punch, 2 1/8" Circle Nestie, PTI Heart border die, My Favorite Things Flower die, Sco-Tape, Glue.
Supplies for Owl Card: SU Owl punch, SU small flower punch,  PTI Button Bits & Tremendous Treats Birthday (for sentiment), Buttons, My Mind's Eye dp, Nesties.

On to the Candy!  I know it isn't spring but I just loved the sweet patterns in this Little Yellow Bicycle 6x6 paper pad, it's filled with butterflies, flowers and birds.  And to coordinate with the paper I'm also giving away a pack of matching stick pins, rhinestones, ribbon, bakers twine and the Stampendous stamp set Butterfly Beauties.  Play along with the CTD this week and leave a comment here for a chance to win.


Best of luck to you!
