Birthday Excitement

I made this little guy 2 months ago, and am just now getting around to posting it...woo hoo! His expression just makes me smile, because it's one I make a lot around my kids.

The images were stamped separately and cut out, then glued on to the card. I computer-printed "Happy Birthday" inside the card. I had the hardest time getting smooth, blended coloring on the owl image with my Copics, so I think I'll have to find a better way to color Hooty next time; maybe just stamp him on light brown paper.

Stamps.....U R A Hoot (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink....Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Paper....Solar White (Neenah); Kraft & black (unknown); Urban Prairie (BasicGrey)
