Polka Dot Stenciled Birthday Card

Today I have a card with a background that was made with a Mini Tiny Circles stencil by The Crafters Workshop and sponged with light brown ink on a kraft card base. The polka dot panel was a snippet that I cut with a Lil Inker Stitched rectangle die. The owl is a stamped image by the now closed Marks Finest Papers and I colored it with Copics and cut it with a Gina Marie Designs stitched oval die. I added some flag banners with a white heat-embossed birthday sentiment by Sweet'n Sassy stamps; then for the final touch I added a bit of glossy accents to the eyes of the owl.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

This is really adorable, Carol!! The owl is just a cutie and wow, the patterned background you made with that stencil and the little fishtail banners are perfect to match him and the polka dots!! A perfect male card for a birthday, too! Well done!
