Memory Box Owl Birthday Card

I was lucky enough to be give a stash of card that I raided for this card. The owl came from the Memory Box set Heart Owl Tree. I just used the owl and cut it out many times in lots of different card. I found some scripted paper in my stash and cut out the backgrounds for the owls. I ink with distress inks rusty hings and walnut stain. I tend to blend my inks to get the colour I want. I used red tape, pinflair gel glue and Aleene's turbo tacky glue to stick it all together. The card blank was made with a piece of A3 centura pearl card. The finished card is 8 x 8 inch. I have plans to make some smaller cards with this design.

Thanks for looking.
