We "owl" wish you a happy birthday!

This week, I found another obsession - Skipping Stones Design. They had a blog hop earlier this week and just opened their store. I wanted some of their super awesome stamps pretty bad but, Christmas left me broke so, I just used their Card Sketch 2.
The details --
     I used the 1/4 inch corner rounder on my Crop-a-dile Corner Chomper for all of the rounded corners. The balloon, hat, present, and Olivia the Owl are all cut out from the Owl Celebrations set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I used foam sitckies to raise the hat, balloon (but not the string), and the whole "Happy Birthday" section off of the cream base. I colored the stamps with my black Copic markers and assorted Marvy Brush Markers. The plaid and blue papers are from Die Cuts With A View and the Cream cardstock is from the Paper Factory. Being the queen of thrift, you can guess where the buttons came from. That's right - Goodwill! Best $7 giant bag of crafty stuff ever! I accented the Happy Birthday stamp, from Making Memories, with my Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. Yay, glitter!
It's a pretty darn cute card. I must say, I'm liking all of this time I have right now for crafting. :) Enjoy!
