Have a Hoot on your Birthday

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  We had a great time at a wedding yesterday.  The bride looked stunning and the weather was nice and sunny.  I will post some pics this week of the stationery items that I made for the happy couple.
But today is my youngest daughters 22nd birthday so I would like to show you the card I made for her.


My daughter loves owls so I knew I wanted to create something using an image of an owl.  
For the image panel I created a little scene using several stamps that I have.  The owl, branch and sentiment are a Woodware set.  The little grasses at the bottom are Papermania Book Print Urban Stamps.  The tree branches and leaves are Paper Smooches Gently Seasoned stamp set.  I paperpieced the owl using Docrafts Tilly Daydream papers.  A length of ribbon was added to the bottom and the panel was matted onto brown pearlescent paper.
For the background of the card I used paper from the Lillibet range from Trimcraft.  Again, this was matted onto pearlescent paper.  I added two strips of ribbon and used my Craftwork Cards letter stamps to stamp onto card candi.  The large flower is from Craftwork Cards and I added the yellow flower for a centre.  Some gems to the top corner finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to hear what you think.
