Hallowe'en Birthday

It's Terry's Birthday tomorrow, we've always joked that I married a werewolf. He's not changed so far, so I think I'm fairly safe after 30 years, unless he's a slow developer... It's only a few days since Ryan's birthday, six weeks since Megan's, and my birthday is 1st December. We didn't plan that very well, did we? So, I don't feel very organised for Terry's special day. I've made a card using a free download from Artylicious, which is Hallowe'en themed. I have never made a Hallowe'en card for Terry before, but I liked this design, and I have just bought some gorgeous Tattered angels products from Graphicus which tie in nicely. I resized the paper to fit onto a square card, and stamped the flourishes at the end of the owl's tail all around the edge of the design. I used Distress Inks to colour a large ATC sized piece of Stampboard and stamped as much of the owl as possible onto it. I then stamped the flourishes onto any spaces on the Stampboard too. I painted the owl with Distress Inks in a mixture of browns. I matted and layered everything onto my card, and there you are. Terry will be underwhelmed as per usual, but I've tried. Hope you like, Judith x

Great card Judith - very atmospheric! My son's birthday is the 28th Oct and my daughter's baby was due on the 27th. Still no baby so maybe arrive on the 31st. At least I hope it's not much longer. Her first was 10 days late and then another 2 days before she appeared! I think we all know what men are like about cards! Actually it's not always just men is it?

It's a lovely card, Judith. He should be delighted, but men don't say much do they!!!! I hope he has a great day.
You certainly have a birthday fest going on at the minute and all so near Christmas too!!!!
I saw the free Graphicus download but thought it was too Halloweeny for me, but you've changed my mind, it looks great with your owl.
Enjoy your weekend.
