Birthday Owl

An owl in a tree, made a bit differently than I usually do.  I stuck the owl inside the card inside of popping up the whole front with foam tape such as in this previous card.
I used the colour palette at Crafty Creations, using kraft, pink, white and brown (although my brown is quite a bit darker).
