Happy Birthday Christina!

Today we are celebrating the birthday of one of the sweetest people I know...Christina MacLaren of SeaGlass Papercrafts.  I have come to know Christina through our 12 Kits of Christmas and then 12 Kits of Occasions group.  Christina is not only a fabulous card maker, but she always leaves the most heartfelt and sincere comments on my blog, the kind of comments that make you feel good all day!  Joyce of Cards by the Sea has once again organized a birthday blog hop for Christina and I am hoping she will enjoy all of the cards her friends have made for her today.
I have been wanting to make a card using my new Serendipity Owl die with a Fall birthday theme.  Christina's special day was all the incentive I needed.  Isn't that the most detailed owl die cut?  I perched him on the Impression Obsession Bare Branch with leaves cut from Fall patterned papers.  The sentiment is also from Serendipity (Everyday Words, large) and the background layer is a Spellbinder die.

Make sure to stop by Christina's blog and wish her a Happy Birthday...here's a link to all of other crafters who have made cards to wish Christina happiness on her special day.


Such a wonderful autumn birthday card! That owl is so beautiful sitting on the tree branch all decked out in fall colors! So very beautiful! :)

Oh, Cathy, that owl is amazing! And what a gorgeous use of the fall colors--those patterned leaves are so pretty with the pearl accents. Thank you so much for helping me to celebrate my birthday, and for your sweet words. This is a wonderful surprise. I'm so lucky to have a friend like you!
