Who-o Who-o has a Birthday?

Good morning Everyone,

Today I am sharing a quick birthday card I made for my fiance's Auntie. I was advises last night that we were going to a surprise bday party, and I just really didn't want to show up with empty hands... When you are a crafter/card-maker, people have certain expectations from you! I am sure all of you get abuse if you bring a shop-bought card!?!

I was advised the Birthday Girl liked owls, hence I quickly put together a paper-pieced easel card with an owl on it (googly eyes were a must here!). I also added a suitable sentiment, and was even tempted to use the word "BIRD-DAY", but I didn't want to push it! ;-) I used one of the papers that I have treasured for the last year and a bit - it seemed just to pretty to be used! I completely forgot which collection the paper is from - if anyone knows, please let me know!

Hope you like the card - the Birthday Girl was delighted! 

 And a few close-ups to show the lovely glittery paper

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge - Things with wings
QKR - spring or pink/yellow/green (the flowery background reminds me of spring)
Inky Impressions - Mother's Day or For a Lady
Love to Create - For Mom or Special Lady

Have a good Sunday!



  1. Fabulous card - uber cute image and I love how you have done the sentiment.
    Thanks for playing along at AGOAC this week.
    Good luck.
