Wobble Owl Birthday Card - Shake your hooty!

Isn't she the cutest little owl ever!  I made this for my girlfriend and fellow artist, Maria, for her birthday.  Maria's sorority mascot was an owl, so I'm always trying to find a clever card to invoke some great memories.
The card colors are SU Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede.  Owl is a digital, enlarged and colored with Copics on Neenah Solar White.  And the best part is he WOBBLES!  Thus, the sentiment "Shake your hooty!!!"

Stamp set (leaves) from SU World of Dreams, sentiments are computer generated and cut out with the SU Feathers Framelits Dies.  Woodgrain embossing folder by Darice.

Spooky Cute Owl

Halloween Owl Card or Decoration.  Love those glistening owl eyes.  I used the Sizzix Owl bigz die and cut the owl out with 110# Black Card Stock and scraps.  Copics on the talons and Glossy Accents on the eyes.  Spooky cute!

Night Owl

Also in my stash, I cam across this Monochromatic card from a past class.  I made these cards in pinks, yellows, greens and this blue.  Stamp is Inkadinkado colored with Copics with Stickles added for some bling.

You Whoo!

I made this card a few years ago and I really enjoyed coloring the clip art baby owl with Copics.  Fussy cut the owl and branch, and die cut a hole in the front of the woodgrain embossed card.  It sort of looks like he is on a branch on the outside of the tree looking in, thus the blue sky in the background.  I will be making a few more of these cards and will post them here later.
