Polka Doodles #31: Birthday Girl

Happy Friday, fellow crafters. Welcome to a brad new challenge over at Polka Doodles. This week we have an easy one for you: "Birthday Girl".  All you have to do is make a birthday card for a little lady - told ya it's an easy challenge.

For my card, I went to the very beginning, to the CD that started it all - "Sugar Birdies". This CD is jam packed with the cutest owls, birdies, butterflies and bugs. There are also loads of bright and fun papers, elements, digi stamps, sentiments and embellishments.  I didn't use any of the delish papers from the CD (although I was sorely tempted) because I wanted the owls to stand out. The little girl I have in mind has a thing for owls ... and who can resist these cute creatures all dressed up with blossoms and bows! This is my bird-day card for a sweet little girl:

I'm using this cute owl topper from the Sugar Birdies Collection. No patterned papers on this card. Instead,  the background is some brown CS embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. This owl element comes with space for you to adhere your own greeting. Simple embellishments: bling and some twine. And a fun addition: GOOGLY EYES for one of the owls. Can you spot which one?

Here's a close-up of the owls. They are just too cute. Take a closer look at the owl in the middle!

I added another little sentiment on the inside.
There you have it! A simple birthday card that you can make in no time at all, using the timeless Sugar Birdies CD.  I'm also taking my owls to the following challenges:

Whimsical Designs "Going Buggy"
Southern Girls Challenge #74 "Animal Antics"
Cute Card Thursday #280 "Anything Goes"
Craftin' Boutique #1 "Anything Goes"
4 Crafty Chicks #153 "Bling"
Dutch Dare Card #228 "For Child"
Tammy's Scrapin' Corner #73 "Use a Digi"
Whoopsi Daisy "Things With Wings"

Now it's your turn. Make birthday card for a girl and link it up to the Polka Doodles Challenge Blog by 12 noon (British Summer Time) on Sunday 11 August. There are cool prizes to be won. So hurry up and start crafting, my friends! 

That's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you in blogland.
