Happy Birthday Philip!

Today Philip is celebrating his 6th Birthday!!

Of course it had to be a special card for Philip – so “pirates” it is, with of course the Stampin’ Up! Owl Punch.

I used a bright colour scheme of Lucky Limeade, Real Red, and Pacific Point along with Crumb Cake for the Owls and a little Baja Breeze and So Saffron. I scrunched and inked the So Saffron, then ripped it to add texture, then Baja Breeze was scrunched and I coated it with Crystal effects.

I really enjoyed making these cute punch art owls, I added some Crystal Effects to give a glossy finish to some of the areas.

A close up of the detail, I used the Party This Way stamp set for the greeting and coloured it with my markers then spritzed it with ink before cutting it out.

I decorated the inside of the card with balloons from the Party this Way stamp set and included that all important “6” the sentiment is from the exclusive hostess stamp set Happiest Birthday Wishes.

Almost time to light the candles on Philip’s choice of cake – a football cake?? Philip is having a joint Birthday party with his friend who celebrates his Birthday tomorrow on Saturday morning.
