Birthday Turqouise & Cocoa Combo

Howdy! Since all of my other projects are still in my head making big plans, I thought I would post this birthday card instead. I added Mr. Owl with dimentionals, but he still doesn't pop off the card enough. I think I will go back and add some Glossy Accents to him, and maybe outline the Happy B-day squares too.

Some more shots of the details and the inside~

For the bottom, inside border, I used the "negative" of the oval chain die cut. It was the left-over just crying out to be used. (The peaks from the scallop die cut were too close together.)

My working surface was just as organized as this photo depicts. I swear.

Acrylic block: Lawn Fawn
Ribbon, Michael’s Crafts
Ballpoint-tip glue pen, Martha Stewart
Foam tape used for owl, Scotch Mounting Squares, cut to size
Dies: My Favorite Things, Simply Scallops & Oval Chain Border
Cling Stamps: Stampin'Up Punch Bunch **(Sale-A-Bration); Create a Cupcake
Ink: Stampin’Up Classic, in Tempting Turquoise & Close to Cocoa
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Aqua Mist
Patterned paper: K & Company, Best of Brenda Walton
**note: Sale-A-Bration stamp set is only available as purchase w/purchase.

I realize this post is kind of "dry" but I just don't know what to do about it! I have got to get going! If you have any questions, just ask. :)
