Clean & Simple Birthday Owls

Hello everyone,

Well, after a pretty long absence, I'm finally back. Vacation is over. Renovations and painting are finished. Back to work and school was survived. My laptop, which died, is up and running once again. I'm feeling like my creative mojo is back!

September and October are full of birthdays for me. I used last week's One Layer Wednesday recipe challenge, to use three images and one sentiment, to craft this card. It only took me two tries but I think this is a really cute card.

The card base is from Strathmore. The images are Close To My Heart You're A Hoot stamped in Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip and Old Olive. The sentiment is Close To My Heart Celebration stamped in Stampin' Old Olive.

I love these little owls. One of my best friends loves all things owl so I bought this set because I thought I'd get a lot of use from it. This was a really fun card to put together although it took tremendous will power to leave the glitter and embellishments on the shelf.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
