FCCB #51 - It's Hip To Be Square with Green & Gold

It's Challenge Me Monday time over at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  This week Challenge #51 is to make a Square card and use colors Green & Gold (bright yellow will do).  Funness!  I looked at all the great cards their talented Design Team made to inspire the masses and LOVED Lisa's square card with her little lamb from Create A Critter.  I was inspired to follow her square card pattern.  Here's what I came up with:
Card #80
Card base is Glitter Green cardstock from DCWV Cotton Bloom Stack cut @ 10" x 5" and scored @ 5".
Green & Black solid papers from Stampin' Up
4 black squares cut @ 2 3/8" x 2 3/8"
2 yellow squares cut @ 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
2 green squares cut @ 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"
1 black square cut @ 3 1/2"
1 green square cut @ 3 1/4"
1 yellow square cut @ 3"
Hoot N Holler Cricut cartridge used for OWL (Owl #1) cut @ 3 3/4"
Extras:  Green googlie eyes, pink button, pink jute, and pop dots for owl all from Joann's or Michael's
