Candace's Surprise Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday Dear Candace!
Happy Birthday to you!

If you sing this to yourself then you can't blame me for it sounding horrible.  lol.

Yesterday was Candace's Birthday and a group of us HOO (ha, couldn't resist) think the world of her have gotten together some surprises for her.

If you've just come here from Ruthie's page then you're in the right spot.  If you got off track start at the beginning at Kim's page to see all the surprises we have lined up for Candace.

Ok, onto my project.  I have seen all the shape cards around lately and wanted to try one out but I wanted to put a different spin on it so I turned it into an easel card. 

Here's what the card looks like closed


and here it is standing up.

I hope you like it, I enjoyed challenging myself. 
I used every black/grey/white pen I own to color in the owl and it's all glittery.  I sure wish the picture showed the shine.  :)


Candace, I hope you have had fun looking at all the projects. 
I wish you the happiest birthday!  I hope you have a spectacular day!

Don't forget we are offering some yummy Blog Candy.  Rules: Post on everyone's project, that's it!  The candy can be seen at the starting page with Kim.
