Birthday Owl

Once again my photography is not up to scratch, but it should still be able to give you the idea of the card. I have used the fabulous Owl builder punch on this card - it is such a great punch and surprisingly versatile.

I have used different thickness's of foam pad to create depth with the balloons, and used linen thread to make the balloon strings.

Details I added to the owl were tiny rhinestones for the sparkle in the eyes, a touch of glitter on the owl's heart badge, and the creation of the wing using a cut up scallop circle shape.

I hope you like the result!

I am entering this card into 3 challenges today:
