WHOO missed your birthday?

I whipped up this cute little owl trifold card to send to a friend. I used SVG cuts "Street Carnival" kit to cut the base and layers. I modified the top so it would just be straight all the way across. I used the cutest owl (its the same owl from the card I just posted yesterday) and cut him multiple times in different colors. The owl is a Lori Whitlock file. I purchased the cute little sign from the silhouette store as well. The wooden word bubbles are Studio Calico I just got them. I sure hope she likes the card!! 

It takes me so much time to pick out paper and then I am usually unhappy with it. This time I placed different papers before committing and it helped. I got rid of alot of paper cause I just got sick of looking at it all the time, going through it never wanting to use it and now I probably could have used some of it. Oh well....

I popped alot of the owls and the sign to give some dimension. Used my favorite Twine from Timeless Twine the Aqua

***PS Janet I use Glossy accents to adhere my twine and also on most of my paper piecings. I have a special little bottle I put it in with a fine point! Its awesome!

**I AM ENTERING THIS IN THE PAPER CRAFT MAGAZINE IDOL GALLERY COMPETITION. WISH ME LUCK!!!
