Birthday Owl

It's my eldest baby's 19th Birthday today! here's just a quick post to share the card I made for her. I've told you before that she's owl mad,in fact this is the 3rd Owl card I've shared with you that I've made.

I  found another free colouring page (sorry I never thought to save the link) I used this as the template to collage with a selection of papers . There's over 50 tiny circles punched and distressed to make the chest of the owl,took ages but I enjoyed doing it.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Little Red Wagon 93,Bird,
CIC33,Things with wings,
Fabulous Friday, Animal,
Fuzzy Wuzzy 12,Animal,shaped,
Delightful Challenges,Things with wings,
Digi Doodle 71,Shaped card,
Divas By Design 8,Birthday,
Tuesday Throwdown 61,Birthday.

I thought I'd share a photo of the cake my other 2 children made for their big sister,they were so proud of their efforts and my eldest was delighted.
Have a great weekend,thanks for stopping by,
