Owl Die for You -- April Challenge with the UnstampaBelles

The UnstampaBelles April challenge is Dies with the optional twist of adding one or more Birds. You can make whatever you like without using any stamps.

I made a shaker card using a Spellbinders die set. I cut the background 4 times: 1) patterned paper background, using the opposite side of the double-sided paper for the outer frame; 2) white foam; 3) coasterboard; 4) two-toned cardstock that I embossed with the die & sanded. The details on the birds are actually the coasterboard showing through the plastic sheet on top. I used Copic markers for the colors, but painted the eyes with glow-in-the-dark paint. I filled the sections with plastic confetti.

I cut the big owl with a die set I have in my stash. I used the same double-sided cardstock, but added some googly eyes. I made the sentiment myself: "Owl always give a hoot about you!"
