Older and Wiser..

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
For today's project, I have a Birthday card that I made for this weeks challenge over at 
I absolutely love the cute owl image from the "What a hoot" stamp set from Pink & Main
I colored the owl image with my Spectrum Noir Markers and Promarkers
I also used the current sketch from Sketch Saturday #396.

My sparkly orange paper is from The Edumacaton Stack by DCWV.
The purple chevron paper is by Recollections.
I added glitter glue to the orange parts of the owl's party hat and a few orange rhinestones for some extra sparkle. I mounted the cute owl on foam dots for dimension.
I stamped the "older and wiser" sentiment on a speech bubble die cut from the Cricut Explore DS and mounted it on foam dots for dimension as well.

Other Supplies:
Recollections card stock
Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue
Foam Dots* ATG
