Birthday Card for My Husband

I just finished this birthday card for my husband's birthday this week.  I am sure he will not see it since he never looks at my blog.   I had fun making the card.  The background was made by putting distressed inks in the embossing folder and spritzing it with water and the putting the folder with the paper in it through the Sizzix. 

The owl image is a stamp from Stampendous that I just love. He was coloured with Copics and I added diamond glaze to his watch.   The sentiment was a saying I found on the internet at Barb's World of Whimcees. She has a get list of sentiments for Owl cards. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
