Owl Pocket Card

Hello everyone...I'm running late again :(  Seems to be the norm lately! It's time for a new challenge at our Copic/Promarker group at The Outlawz. Our theme this week is Celebration...a really easy one for this time of the year :)  Hope you'll come and play along with us...and don't forget we have a FABULOUS Pollycraft prize up for grabs when our December challenges finish.

Here's what I came up with for this theme:

I went with a birthday celebration theme. I think this may end up being sent to one of my nieces for her birthday in January. If I don't get organised before Christmas, her present ends up being late.

I've made a pocket fold card with a flat tag card insert for the greeting and a bookmark to slip in with it. The cute little owl (YES, another owl lol) is from Pink Cat Studio. I think they are my favourite owls out of all the ones I have :)  AND....ta dah...I've made a FLOWER!!!!  Are you proud of me or what Helen LOL My lovely friend Helen has been making these for a while now and I fell in love with them. Not bad for someone who was never fond of paper flowers! I've been going to have a go at one of these for ages...they are SOOOOO easy to make. I think I feel another addiction coming on :) If you'd like to see a FABULOUS tutorial, head on over to Helens' blog and you'll find a few different flowers to make with this method. My flower parts were cut with my trusty KNK Maxx as I don't have the necessary punches. The wording on the bookmark was created with the Word Art feature in My Memories Suite...which I'm absolutely LOVING!

Here's a close up of the Bookmark:

And one of the Pocket with the lovely flower:
