Owlish birthday

I just grinned from ear to ear when I made this cute owl card!  I cased the original by Diana Gibbs but changed the greeting and some of the colors. 
It was so much fun giving the punch out some personality! 
It's pretty easy to figure out when you look at the details.  When I made the feet, I punched the lower half of the owl in black, then cut it off leaving just enough above the feet to glue it underneath the body.
This isn't the best photo, but some of our Basic Pearls were added to make the necklace.  Basic Rhinestones add detail to the eyes.  I added the branch from the bird punch so she could perch comfortably over the greeting.
Now I'm starting to think of other ways to dress up that owl!  Should be fun!

Inside the card I made this pop-up holder for the gift card.  I found a video tutorial by Dawn Griffith that shows just how to do it!  I'd been wanting to make a pop up like this for some time and just came across the tutorial recently.  Thanks, Dawn!
