Just so I do have some artwork to show you here, like they say on the cooking shows,.......Here's one I prepared earlier! I made this one for a friend's recent 40th birthday.
The owl and branch are by October Afternoon, I think the decorative swirly thing is too! I used my Justrite Stamper to make the 40th greeting and the 'happy birthday' is from an Image Tree alpha. The green background is a Technique Junkie Newsletter tech called Two Toned Crunch from the Dec 2008 issue.
