Happy Birthday!

It’s a happy day!

It’s my daughter’s 12th birthday today.  The day is filled with brownies, well wishes, balloons, presents (of course) and a cheesecake (for tomorrow).

She loves owls and her presents are all wrapped with an owl team.  To keep to the theme, I made a card (or two) for her.  I am sharing my first card today.

I purchased a few Purple Onion Designs unmounted stamps back in December.  I’m so very fond of the ones designed by Stacey Yacula.  The little owl, in particular, is just too cute!  I stamped this image with black ink and then colored him with Prismacolor pencils.  I fussy cut the image and then aside.

On a scrap piece of white CS, I added several shades of yellow CS in equal widths to it for a variegated effect.  I trimmed the paper to create the square.  On another scrap piece of white CS, I stamped a woodgrain background with brown ink and then colored the entire piece with Distress Ink.  I then die cut Memory Box’s Woodland Branch through my Big Shot.  I returned to square and partiall die-cut Woodland Branch.  I then glued the stamped version of my branch die into the negative space of the square.  I added the owl on top of the branch with dimensional foam.  I then added a greeting from the new clear Penny Black set, Special Wishes (30-229).

I think she’s going to love it!  I do!  I have another card I made that I will share tomorrow.

Back to finishing the cheesecake.

And, don’t forget to check out the Penny Black site.  The products from the new release “Happy Everything” are now available for purchase.  You can find them HERE.  I’ve got a few cards to share as well in the upcoming weeks.
