Birthday Owl

It's an inspiration challenge over at Just Add Ink this week. The brief is to use the following picture as inspiration
and it can also be interpreted as Just Add A Bright Splash of Colour, so that's what I've done. My background is in neutral colours very vanilla and soft suede, and my splashes of colour are in rose red and pumpkin pie. I particularly wanted to use some of the luscious wide striped ribbon - luuuuuuurve big bows!

Here's my birthday owl:


If you'd like a closer look, just click on the photo. The non SU items are the balloon punch (Sullivans), orange rhinestones (Kaiser) and embroidery thread (stash).

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers
Kez

I can't believe how many fabulous owl's you have created.

The balloons really give this owl his character and the wide ribbon sets off the whole card. I really like this card.
