Inkspiration 81 - a baby girl owl birthday

Oh my - its been a lonnnng time since I've had time to play along with an Inkspiration challenge - and I do miss that! But I've had this week's sketch on my mind and I had a birthday card to make for my gorgeous little niece who turns one soon. Now I have been trying to make this card off and on for a week but it just wasn't working!! But this afternoon inspiration struck - you see I am actually making her a felt owl teddy in gray and pink for her birthday and it occured to me why don't I make a card to match. Rather amazingly this card I think only took me one hour to put together (with an interval for a school pick up in between). So first up here's the sketch.
And here is what I made of it.

I have a decided fondness for scalloped circle easel cards and I thought it added that something extra to make this significant birthday special. So very briefly I started with a Basic Gray base, then added a Pretty in Pink mat, then a Pink Pirouette top mat. This was stamped with the Woodgrain in Pretty in Pink. I punched out my owl and stuck her together, added some sparkle to her bow and crystal effects to the little heart. She is perched on some greenery and a strip of Bashful Blue grosgrain. The final touches are a little blue cloud and some tiny blinged flowers. The sentiment inside acts as the stopper for the easel card. It will be a perfect match to her owl (well once I finish making her owl that is) and that makes me happy :)
