Owly Birthday Greetings


This little owl from Fox and Friends has flown in to say Happy Birthday!  He's perched himself on a branch from the 2 step Owl punch.

Firstly I masked a rectangle to make the cloudy background with a scallop circle mask.  I've used Bashful Blue mainly with a little Marina Mist and Baja Breeze added in.  The branch is sponged using a cut out mask of the branch with Early Espresso ink.  I positioned the owl using my Stamp-a-ma-jig again in Early Espresso.  Happy Birthday was stamped from Occasional Greetings also in Early Espresso.  The card base is Whisper White.

I'm entering this into Less is More as my second card for one layer - something with legs.  Also One Layer Wednesday which has clouds as it's theme.

Thanks for taking a look, hope you've had a great weekend. x
