My Little Brother's a Star !!
A birthday card for my little brother, who will be 46 this year!!! but he will always be my little brother to me.
As owls are still everywhere and still my favourite .....even better than butterflies I think!, I decided to us this owl which is from hunky-dory called "night watch".
It was a set that came complete with 8 sheets of accent foiled adorable scorable card and 4 sheets of foiled and die-cut toppers. There are 10 owls on each sheet as well as branches, sentiments, leaves, stars and moons.
I used a Tonic die (cant remember the name of) for the middle section. Because I had used the matching card to go with the owls, there was already a moon printed on it, so as I used the die over it the moon was cut into. I simply replaced the cut out bits back into the card until the moon was intact. I backed onto some silver mirri card and then onto the black base card. I used Martha Stewart punch to create the star strip. The little stars that came out of the strip I have stuck onto the central piece where the lines cross.
The Brother wording is also from Tonic.
