Shhh ... owl not say how old you are

But I'm looking forward to the 50th celebration!

I was asked to make this card for a friend to give to another friend who had just had her 50th birthday. I was told that she loves owls, so this is what I came up with, using some Dawn Bibby card that I bought a few years ago - it's very shiny and looks different according to the way the light's shining - very difficult to get true photos.

The twinchie that was stamped with a little owl, coloured with copics and edged with distress ink is one that I  made a long while ago - did some for a swap and had one for myself - it was triple embossed with clear powder, so it has a glazed finish. The flowers were from Hobbycraft and the sentiments generated on computer and printed.

This is for:

Timbro scrap mania 99: special occasions
Loves rubber stamps 117: wings
Red rubber inspirationals 134: just wing it
Penny's 191: critters (or Christmas or children)
Stampotique 161: flowers
Card and scrap 80: flowers
Stampavie and more 218: easel card
Ooh-la-la 163: fancy folds
Corrosive 206: B unique - 3 items starting with the letter B: blooms, birds, bling
