Have a Hoot

I made this card for my girlfriend's daughter who will be turning six years old next month.  She loves owls and girly colours so I think this card should work!  I love pink and aqua together.  I covered the dark pink part of the owl with dimensional magic just to give him a bit of a shine.

I am entering this card in the Birthday Sundaes Challenge.  They have just posted their first challenge for the year - just create a NEW birthday card and remember to include a birthday sentiment/wording on your card front!  Hopefully 'Have a hoot' counts as birthday wording!

I'm so glad the Birthday Sundaes challenges are back again.  Birthday cards are my favourite to make and I like the different challenges they come up with.  Looking forward to seeing what other challenges they will post throughout the year.

Papers:  My Minds Eye
Owl:  Create a Critter cartridge
Scalloped circle:  Birthday Bash cartridge
Letter stickers: Kaisercraft
Thanks for looking!
