My idea for this card was to have the little owl out on a branch holding a flag. Once I got that part done it looked to plain and needed a fun background. I didn't like anything I tried so I just started embossing scraps to see what would look the best behind the owl, lo and behold it looked best all together! Who would have thought!!!??? I used a brad for the top of his birthday hat. Isn't he cute! I just love the gogglie eyes!!!
On the inside I added a few more flags. This owl is a little obsessed with flags....plus I had to finish the greeting :) All in all I'm quite satisfied with this card! I got a whole box of new stuff and nothing but cleaning the house on the agenda for today.......but who needs a clean house!!! I know what I'm doing today!!!!!!!
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!
