Hoo's Having a Birthday

Our little neighbor's boy is have a birthday on the 15th.  He will be 7 years old.  He's a really super sweet kid and we will be headed over there for a party next weekend.  I got him a gift card so I need a card that could hold it.   I made this card using the colors red, turqouise and white.  There's also a hint of grey that for some reason looks a little green.  I promise it is grey.  This color combo was the challenge over at More than Favors.  It was an interesting combo that wouldn't have occurred to me to use.  Also over at JUGS, the challenge was to make a lined envelope to go with our card.  Stamps used are Hero Arts and Inkadinkado.  Patterned paper is from a pack I bought eons ago and I couldn't tell you how made.  Cardstock is all various manufactures.  I added faux stitching around the front of the card and pearl dots from a 3-D paint writer.  Since it's for a little boy, I couldn't part with any of my real pearls.  I also used Hoot n Holler, George & Basic Shapes and Gypsy Wanderings cricut cartridges.  This might be one of my favorite cards.  I can tell you that I will be going back and adding a different owl to the pocket the giftcard is in.  It's definitely lacking pizzaz there.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Here's the card and envelope.  The white lettering is actually sparkled with stickles.

Here you can see the stickles.
