Happy hump day friends; hope you are having a great week!

A friend asked for a bday card for someone that has been like a mom to her since her own mother passed, celebrating 70 years young! She loves owls and redid her barn with an owl theme, the request was for a colorful owl card, so I made sure I found lots of color. ;)

This is an adorable set from Taylored Expressions, Hoot Hoot Hooray, comes with 3 matching dies; I have had it for years and love when I have the opportunity to use it! The designer papers are from Elle's Studio; so many great options in this paper pack!

I stamped the smaller owl multiple times on some woodgrain style paper in MFT Kraft Ink; I then die cut one large and one small owl from PTI Rustic White card stock, then using a stamp positioner I stamped each in MFT Hot Fudge and colored with Copics. The background seemed a bit plain when placed against the rainbow paper so I added some of the small flowers with various Altenew inks. I die cut two branches, one from PTI Dark Chocolate, one from Kraft, ran those through the paper crimper. I accented the dark chocolate branch with PTI Vintage Cream and the Kraft with MFT Hot Fudge.

I used the PTI A2 Scalloped Vertical die for the small panel and MFT Blueprints for the larger rainbow paper. I popped the owls up with foam adhesive, added white enamel dots to the eyes followed by glossy accents.

TFL; hope you have a great week!
