Have a Hoot of a Birthday !

Good Morning Bloggers, hope you are doing OK.

The project I'm sharing with you today is a 40th Birthday card I made for a family member. 

This cute owl was in a set of magazine freebie stamps which were produced by Woodware.  I stamped him on to patterned paper and again onto some plain cardstock before cutting out the different parts and building the finished design.   The background embossed layer was created with a Crafts Concepts embossing folder.

The fern fronds were cut using a Memory Box die and the sentiment from the stamp set was stamped onto a circle of cardstock cut with a Stampin'Up! punch.  The numbers were cut using a Memory Box alphabet die set and I added Glossy Accents on to them to give some dimension.  I also added GA to the owl's eyes.

The button was in my stash and I tied a length of twine through the holes before attaching.  The green leaf shaped gem had been in my box of gems for some time and was a perfect finishing touch. 

Not too many friperies and no flowers on this design as it was created for a man, hope he's going to like it.

Til next time........
