Owl Celebrate Your Birthday

I found this cute owl image on Pinterest (post number is listed below).  It really made a cute birthday card.  I was pleased with the color combination I decided to use.  The the pretty plaid paper background really compliments the focal image.

I printed the image on some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser jet printer and colored it with Copic Markers E59, E57, E55; G99, G94, G24; G85, G82, G24, B21; V06, V04, V01; BG75, BG18, BG72; Y26, Y23, Y21; E41, E40, B000.  Once the coloring was complete it was die cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added by tracing the image and fussy cutting the foam.

To enhance the purple in the owl a Rectangle of purple plaid paper from the Lawn Fawn Rainbow Plaid Paper Pad was cut the largest My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back and it was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

The sentiment was stamped onto the plaid paper with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.

An oval was cut from Neena cardstock using a My Favorite Things Pierced Oval STAX.  It was dry embossed using one of the Lifestyle Crafts Chain folders.  It was adhered to the plaid rectangle with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The focal image was adhered using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Glossy Accents was added to the eyes of the owl and Clear Wink of Stella was added to the purple areas of the owl.
