Bethany's Birthday Card

First post of 2016,  hope you had a great christmas and New Year,  and if I have not said Happy New Year to you yet,  then Happy New Year.   Hope you have a great crafting new year.
Bethany's birthday was back in December but I gave her the card before I photo it,  so I had to wait until I went over to get a photo.  I must apologise they are not the best I took these with my mobile camera.  In case you don't know Bethany is one of our grand daughters.
Bethany is mad on Owls so it only seemed fitting that I should make her an owl card,  it took me all day to make this card,  either one piece of card was tooooo big or another was tooooo small,  Anyway this is what I ended up with,  I did heart shape eyes and put a feather at the back of the eye and glued eyes that move on the hearts.  The flower paper on her chest yes I think a pink owl must be a her was a free gift from a magazine.  The butterfly was added on the wing, (I think the crafters might know why???)  I finished off with silver peel off's.
She did love it and it was still on up on the fireplace on Christmas day.
Until we meet again Take care and stay dry in this horrible weather the UK is experiencing.


  1. Happy New Year, Margaret! My granddaughters love owls as well, so I'm sure Bethany was thrilled with this card. I look forward to seeing what you create in the new year!
