Owl Wish Big Today

Wish Big

I was amazed that I could not recall ever making a card for a little girl's birthday!  I've always made them for boys… LoL.  Then again, males seem to be very popular in my family.  I am one of six kids, with five being boys… and we went on to give my parents seven grandsons with one granddaughter.  Go figure… LoL.

So, this one was definitely a challenge.  It took me two days to put this quick and easy card together after my original thoughts went heywire.  I had envisioned a party hat with girly colors… needless to say, I couldn't get the design out of my head and on paper.

Wish Big

Then I realized, I could use a pair of owls from the Owl Punch and make the colors bold and girly… is that possible?  It sure is!  I once had a co-worker who crossed into the Circle of Pals tell me that green goes with everything… her words still hold true… LoL.  The googly eyes add dimension and character to the sweet pals.

The Wish Big sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set completed with the card into a perfection.  =)  I wasn't so disappointed that my party hat idea didn't pan out.

    Adorable card and I love all the colors. What a great idea! The owls looks so cute with their party hats on.

    I really like how all your previous cards are spread out across the bottom of your page. It’s really neat to see all the ones you created in the past couple weeks in one spot. They all look so nice and (believe it or not) I think I missed one! Oh no….going to go check it out!

    Take care and have a great day!
