I am not sure HOO's Birthday it is today, but was inspired by a few different challenges to make this "Hootie" Birthday card.
If it is your Birthday- than I send you Birthday Wishes!
The challenges had me following a sketch, being inspired by an image (pinks and stripes), adding a tag and using a cut from the Storybook cartridge.
This card is a bit larger than an A2, but fits into a business size envelope just perfectly.
I will be linking this to the following challenges...
Here's how I did it....
Card base using Lasting Impressions card stock cut to 8" x 8.25"; fold in half
All other paper is from my scrap stash
Purple scallop squares cut at 2" from Storybook cart, p.30
Circle center punched using CM circle punch
Owls/layers cut at 2" from Hoot "n" Holler cart
Hoot sentiment from My Pink Stamper Tweetie Hoo Puns stamp set and my own printed on my computer
Inside sentiment from My Pink Stamper Everyday Sentiments stamp set
Squiggle eyes and doodles with my gel pen
