Who's Birthday?

 I bought a new stamp at Michael's on Friday and just couldn't wait to use it.  Owls are big right now and I am jumping on that bus also.  They are so cute together.  I decided to use CPS #164 Sketch Challenge.  I turned it and put the ribbon on the bottom and added a flower instead of the bow. 

Then I went to Color Throwdown #90 challenge.  This weeks colors are a great combo and I love them together.  

I stamped & embossed a party hat on the Bazzill purple paper to make my own background paper.  The image I stamped is from Hampton Arts - Party Owls. I hope you can see that I cut their arms out and popped them up to give them dimension.  I also had just bought some brown flock.  Martha Stewart makes great flock so I decided to put a little on the top owl.  Like he has hair on his chest.. lol
