Owl Shower

You Whooooo.  Good morning, the sun is back out after some crazy weather, and it looks to be an awesome weekend for any Memorial Day celebrations.  I am looking forward to a BBQ at work tomorrow, and a few get togethers over the weekend.  I am especially looking forward to the long weekend.  Ahhhhh. 
This was a card for my co-worker's sister for her baby shower.  The inspiration was from her shower invite, isn't it adorable? 

I definitely have a thing for owls, so this was a fun one.  I did a search for Owl Digi stamps and happened upon several at Pink Cat Studio that would work, I had a hard time picking which one to use!  I ended up choosing Cuddles I liked that he was sitting on a branch like the invitation.  There are really a lot of super cute digis available at this site, I will definitely be returning.  Cuddles is colored with Copics, and popped up with foam squares.  Sentiment was a freebie that I have had for forever.  I cut out the background image using Labels 8 Spellbinder, and sponged a little around the image with some blue Studio g ink.  The border punch is Fiskars.
Sketch was # 67 from Try Stampin On Tuesday I liked that it was clean and simple, also like the invitation.

Papers:  American Crafts, Everyday - "Yo!" and "Salut", others from stash.
Embellishments:  Button from stash, baker's twine purchased at Ink About It, two small black Queen + Co pearls for the eyes.

I hope everyone has a great weekend, with lots of fun, food, family, friends, and cold beverages!
