Happy Birthday Owl

Saturday was my brother's birthday and so I needed to make him a card!  He has down syndrome and just turned 62.  Can you believe it?  He is the oldest of 5 and we all love him very much!  He had the best time on Saturday and every year that we celebrate a birthday with him is very special.

What inspired this card was this weeks sketch frenzy Friday!  I knew I wanted to use the owl punch and also wanted to make ballons and it just seemed like the perfect sketch for the card!

Here is a side view!

And a view of the inside!

I am loving decorating all the insides of my cards!  It is a lot of fun.
