Have a hoot on your birthday

Good morning all, hope you are well. Today's card was inspired by one that the lovely Liz McGuire made over on Buttons for Brains. 

I needed a quick birthday card so I went with a version of Liz's card, however hers is much cuter than mine. My owl looks a little sinister or butch lol. 

He's from a stamp set that came with a stamping mag last year. I haven't used him before but once I'd done him I wished I'd picked one a bit cuter lol. 

I coloured him with Copics and then cut the image out with a Spellbinders circle die. 

The leaves are cut with the Sue Wilson Leaves die, and the sentiment stamp is from a Woodware stamp set. 

I stamped him again on the inside and this time he doesn't look as menacing lol. 

I used a dark red card for the matting and layering and a 6 x 6 card blank.

I didn't end up sending the card in the end, couldn't quite bring myself to give someone the butch owl!

Anyway, hope you like it, take care and I'll see you soon.
