Whoooo's 21

This card is for my Qld great-nephew's 21st birthday.  Yuk...great-nephew makes me sound soooo OLD LOL!!  His mum, my niece, is only 10 years  younger than me...we're more like sisters :)  When her & her sister (who is only 8 years younger than me!) were younger they used to take great delight in introducing me to people as their Aunty Lynne...just to raz me lol! They still do it sometimes :)

The challenge at JAI this week is a colour challenge of River Rock, Choc Chip & Wild Wasabi...great boy colours and perfect to use with my gorgeous little SU owl punch, which I've had for a couple of months and not used :(  I LOVE owls and had to have this as soon as it was available in Aus :)  Bad that it's taken me so long to put it to use!

Here's the card:
and I made an envelope to go with it, with another owl:

On the inside I created a pocket to hold his birthday money and the greeting.  I've seen some wonderful ideas using the owl punch...must find some more time to sit and play with him :)

Thanks for looking....have a wonderful day :)

Supplies:
CS:   SU Choc Chip, Wild Wasabi, River Rock, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa (retired)
DP:   SU Elegant Soiree
Other:   SU Owl Punch, glitter pen, Opals thick EP, foam dots, KNK Maxx (to cut branch & leaves), SU Wild Wasabi chalk, SU River Rock ink, Fiskars texture plate

This is gorgeous, Lynne! (Is it okay for a 21st card to be 'gorgeous'??!!) Love everything about it ... and am particularly taken with the leaves on the tree. Too cute.
