Crafting When We Can Challenges #122 - Any occasion

It's been a long time since I played with paper, I've been sat in front of a sewing machine for weeks making 3 dress for saloon girls in HGMTG production of Calamity Jane.  Here is a badly cut out picture of the dress.  As the girls playing the chorus were under 18 I'm not allowed to show them on the internet and as usual I forgot to take any pictures.  The dress was cobbled together from a top pattern and a round skirt, all 12 feet of it, the same for an underskirt and net skirt and frills sewn to the inside so when the girls picked the front up to do their dance the frills moved.  Don't worry to preserve modesty of the girls they wore big white bloomers under the dress.  Needless to say I really needed my Pilates on Wednesday to help with a aching back and shoulders.
Anyhoo on to the reason for my post.  The challenge over at CWWCC is Any occasion, I made a birthday card with an image, Adriana's Owl kindly provided by the wonderful sponsor Karleigh Sue Digi Store.  I really enjoyed making this card as it was my first for about 2 months.  I used my Brother Scan 'n' Cut and scraps of card from my stash.  The image was coloured with Promarkers and Copic pens.  The sparkles in the flowers are Tonic Nuvo glitter drops and in the spots on the head scarf I used Crafters Companion glitter pens.
