Confetti Birthday

I have another card for a great niece this one has turned 14.  I am using another die that my hubby bought for his art and I am using it before he has :)  The confetti in this die set is very small, I suggest cutting it out of paper that you have already added adhesive to it, makes putting the little pieces on a lot easier.  I only have pieces left to my paper pad so I decided to use it on this card, thought it gave a little bit more of a festive look to it, also used a pattern paper for the confetti so it wasn't a flat color.



I took a closeup picture so you can see the confetti a little better, also did some stenciling through the die before I took the paper out to frame the sentiment.


I have no name for the birthday stamp and can't even remember where I got it.

BasicGrey -- Lilykate paper
Spellbinders -- Ironworks Accents dies (sentiment, framing and border)
Taylored Expressions -- Celebration Confetti
Happy Birthday stamp

I thought I would share some pictures my hubby took of a couple of baby owls that he heard of through my hubby's on line photography group.  They were at a park in one of the suburbs of St. Louis we found the first one still in the nest.




This next picture is of one of the babies that have flown the nest.

 You can see how their feathers are still a bit fluffy, so neat to watch them.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend, full of fun and creativity.

What a sweet card for your great niece, Connie. And, yes, it is a good idea to add the paper to adhesive-backed paper before die cutting, especially when they are this small. And wow, the owl is amazing, and I totally love how you've captured him with the feathers looking so fluffy...remarkable. Hugs, sweet friend, and have a wonderful weekend!
