A Crazy Happy Bird-day!

Hi everyone.

I just wanted to share the birthday card which I made for my Mother-in-law...

The image is from the Tim Holtz 'Bird Crazy' stamp set with matching dies, which I bought at the NEC. My hubby Ted just fell in love with this set. I've coloured using Copics. I love the way all the wings, beaks and eyes also have dies so you can layer them up. I've used 3D glue gel for this. I'm really hoping Father Christmas will bring me the accessory set of stamps and dies to go with these.
I've been looking for a die to do the happy birthday for ages and spotted this memory box one at the NEC. You can't really see in the photo but the black and white papers are both pearlescent. 
I used a Cheery Lynn die and a tonic punch to make the flower, finished with an orange candi to pick out the beak colour of the owl.
Oh, I nearly forgot to mention the tiny bow I added to the owl's head. I tied it using my new bow maker (also from the NEC). I love this, it's so easy to use.
The whole card has been matted with mirri board and contains an orange liner with a deckle edge.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thank you so much for visiting. I'll see you again soon.
