A Friday Mashup Win and an Owl Birthday Card

Today is already off to a good start! One of my cards was chosen as the winner of the latest Friday Mashup challenge! What a nice surprise!

Another reason to celebrate - our neice, Zulea, has a birthday today! 

I thought it would be fun to make her a card with punch art owls. I saw this great sketch from Always Playing With Paper and used it as the base of my card design:

I'm also linking up with Seize the Birthday:

I love the new designer series paper in the Stampin Up Spring Occasions Mini Catalogue and decided to use it on this card. The colour combo of Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana look fabulous together! 

How cute are these owls?! They were created using the Owl Builder punch from Stampin Up - probably one of my favourite punches of all time! The cute party hats were created using the Petite Pennant Builders punch (cut off part the bottom portion) and one of the Itty Bitty punches for the pom. And the owl party continues inside the card! 

Here's wishing Zulea a fantastic day! 

This card was inspired by Darlene Design
