Look Who's Turning 20!

Happy Thursday!
And..........HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my youngest son! He's turning 20 years old today and I guess even though he's not a baby, he will always be my baby!  He's smart and handsome and has the most awesome smile you've ever seen! I love you honey!

Now, for his card I used some items from an old Kim Hughes set (the owl, the branch and the sentiment)  The "20" is cut out with my Cricut Expressions and the Makin' the Grade cartridge.  That yummy orange scalloped border is from The Cutting Cafe' from a set called Fall Time Bingo Cards. I love that scalloped frame and there are several colors to choose from.
I'm still using my old book pages...are you tired of seeing them yet? lol!  I stamped Kim's sentiment right on the book page as well as the branch, it's stamped directly on a book page then cut out.  Mister Owl is colored with my Copic markers.
My son loves to sleep so I thought this sleepy eyed ole owl fit him perfectly! Heehee! Isn't he a cutie?
I finished the whole thing off with some vintage buttons, a little piece of button twine and a few rain dots.  Mister Owl, the number 20 and the whole scalloped piece is popped up off the card.

Thanks for stopping in to see me today. Please come again real soon, but until then...have a lovely day! HUGS! :)
