The Greeting Farm - Owl Birthday Card

Hi guys! Uni has started back for trimester 2, so I have hit the books again, which means, I may go quiet on here around assignment time.... 
I had a chance to craft the other evening... Here is my card  -
I started out by stamping the owl from the retired The Greeting Farm set, Forest Friends, on my X-Press it blender card, and lightly drew a circle for a moon. I then coloured up the owl, and moon using my Spectrum Noir Markers, doing the background using a spotted background technique. (see this awesome tutorial for how to!) I then trimmed my main image panel down, and selected my patterned paper, from Echo Park Scoot Paper Pad, and also some glitter paper from Freckled Fawn. The little circle, between the main image panel, and the glitter banner is from the same Echo Park patterned paper, it is the reverse side of the diamond one I've used on the patterned paper panel. I doodled all around the edges (except the glitter layer) using my Project Life journaling pens, and then mounted everything onto some navy blue card, (based with white and stone coloured card). The sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie, which I then cut out with an MFT Die-namic, I added a navy button and some Lemondrop Twine from The Twinery to finish off my card!
