H2H Challenges: You Better Shape Up!

It is time to get in shape over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!  We want to see you use a fun shape as the base of your project: no squares or rectangles allowed.  Are you up for it?  If so, be sure to head over there to link up your shapely creation.
Isn't she a hoot?  To make this card, I used the Huntington paper pack and my CTMH/Cricut Artiste cartridge.  This shape is not actually a card, so I'll explain how I made her.  First, I cut her out of two pieces of card stock (Colonial White for the base and Champagne for the front), setting my Cricut dial at 6".  Then, I cut the second layer ("feather" and eye pieces) first with Cocoa card stock and then with a piece of Huntington B&T.

To assemble the card, I scored the base at 1.5" from the top.  Hopefully you can see the line in the picture.  Then I added adhesive to that top portion, lined up the card front, and stuck them together.
Here's now she looks opened up.
Because I'm making this card for a special young lady, I added a little rosette with a scrap of another piece of Huntington B&T and one of the gorgeous Rosewood gems.  One other little detail is that I stamped the wood-grain stamp from the Huntington Workshop on the Go on the "wings" so that they stood out just a bit.

Thanks for taking a peek at my owl-shaped card!  Be sure to check out what the H2H DT came up with this week, and get in shape with us by 10/31!

Wonderful card, Haley! I love how you placed the rosette as a hair bow! Thanks for explaining how you created the fold--I was wondering how you would work with those curves!
