Birthday Owl

I just have one card to share this weekend, which is the one I have made is for my nephew's birthday following the Seize the Birthday sketch.  All the cards and papers are from my snippets drawer so I'm back in Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground,

Woodware 'Patch an Owl' image and sentiment stamps
Papers and card from snippets drawer
Cuttlebug Number Collage embossing folder
Raffia Lace
Wiggle Eyes

I attached a square of craft card to a white card blank onto which I layered a piece of green card which had been embossed with my Cuttlebug Number Collage embossing folder.  I trimmed a piece of raffia lace and wrapped it around the left side of the card.   The Woodware 'Patch an Owl' image and sentiment were stamped onto a scraps of white card, layered onto craft card and attached to the card front.  I used snippets to paper piece the owl.  The wings were attached with foam tape.
To finish I added 'wiggle eyes' to the owl.
