Inspired by the challenge for 1/5:1/5 - “Happy Bird Day” - Inspiration: Bird, a square card, and/or sentiment in a circle using 2 different fonts

Here's what I did:
1. Cut out and layered the papers (green cardstock and pattered paper by Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses).
2. Stamped the branch & leaves (from Hero Arts “Sweet Owls”) onto the cream cardstock rectangle with black Staze-on.
3.On a scrap piece of cream cardstock, I stamped the owl (from Hero Arts “Sweet Owls”) twice and the cupcake and candle (from Basic Grey) once with the same ink.
4.Cut out just the eyes of one owl, flipped them and glued them down onto the other owl. The goal was to be able to draw in the black parts of the eyes myself so they were looking up at the cupcake.
5.Cut out the cupcake and layered owl and attached them, one on each branch and then colored and painted them with watercolor pencils and glimmering watercolors.
6.Punched a circle out of white cardstock and hand wrote “Happy Birthday” in black pen.
7.Stamped “Dad” in the center with green ink (Studio G alphas).
8.Attached the circle sentiment using dimensional adhesive.
9.Used a distressor on the edges of the patterned paper, inked the edges of the green and cream layers and attached the layers to the khaki Paper Source card.

Thanks for looking!
