A Birthday Card for my Sister

My sister loves this stamp from Stampavie so it was the perfect choice for her birthday card. Her birthday was actually a couple of weeks ago and we've been trying to catch up in person, but sometimes things get in the way. Both Sharon and her son Liam have been unwell and then my work and Liam's schedule got in the way! In the end I popped it in the post!

I used the largest Nestie for the image so I cut another one out in brown to sit behind it - all I did was split it in half and nestle it underneath the main image - I did have to trim off the "points" to make it sit better - but I'm happy with the extra definition it gave the card! I've used Crystal Effects on the owl's eyes, it really makes them come to life! I've also used Dazzling Diamonds on their little tummies and the stars.

Sharon called me today to thank me for the card so I know I can post it now! She guessed I had used the owls - she knows me to well!!!

Luvya Sis!!

Hey Debbie, I don't often leave comments even though I'm always checking to see what you are up to but every so often I can't resist telling you how beautiful your creations are.

I love your card today. The colours are superb as is the image.
