Look Whoooos almost 40!

Hi there. Today we have a new challenge for you over at the Creative Belli Challenge. Our challenge this time is "The Letter C". So...grab some emBELLIshment from your stash that start with the letter "C" and play along with us. It might be Chipboard, or Charms, or Crystal effects, or Cash (hey a penny might fit well on a card)...you get the idea. Here is what I came up with for this one. Ok...so a "fun fact" about me...I LOVE owls! I have collected them since I was a little girl. So...a few years ago, SU had these owl chipboard pieces, and I of course HAD to have them. Then...I hoarded them...lol. Well I thought this was the perfect time to pull them out. I layered him with this PP from My Mind's Eye. I layered him onto the yellowish PP which is also MME. For the sentiment, I used a combo of some letter stamps (Maya Road), and the "whoooooo" stamp from TAC. The numbers are also chipboard pieces. They were left over from the advent calendar I made this year.
I made this card for my oldest brother. He will be 39 this year, so I thought it would be fun to remind him how close he is to 40...lol.
Now it is your turn, head on over to the Creative Belli Blog, and see what the other ladies have made for your inspiration. Then grab some "C" bellis and play along! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

This card is also for the following challenge:

Very cute, I'm sure your brother will love being reminded, but be careful, one day you will be in his position! LOL! But I bet he won't make you a cute card like this though. Great job.
