Blue "O"wl

     My daughter received an invitation for a 3-year-old girl's birthday party and asked me to make a card. The theme of the party was Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood - NEVER heard of it!!  I checked it out on Google. I thought the little girl would be able to relate to something that resembled a character on the show. I chose the owl. BTW: His name is "O".
Card and Envelope
     This July sketch from Sketch N Scrap is the perfect framework to make this card. You have ALL month to try out this sketch and enter it for a prize. This card is posted on the Sketch N Scrap Facebook page as well.
     The chevron print down the left side of the card is not on the sketch. In my defense, I didn't really add it, as the chevron is the border provided at the bottom of the confetti paper. It is just a happy accident that it came up there on the paper.
     You are seeing my infamous 1/8 inch strips of paper as embellishments. You see it a lot in my work. I find that on this card it adds interest and sometimes (not here really) elegance to a card. 

Card Sketch #101
     Here is a pic of the character I was trying to immulate: 

     There is another 1/8 inch strip on the inside of the card to made the illusion that the cake is dangling on the card. As usual I used a scrap here. There were some owl die cuts laying on the table when I finished.
