This card came about because I needed a birthday card for and October birthday and I thought it would be fun to create one with a Halloween theme.  I combined the Have a Hoot stamp set with the Designer Series paper from the Magic in the Night suite all by Stampin UP®.  I think these owls are so cute and were perfect for wishing someone Happy Birthday!  The great thing about this set is it also has owls that go along with a Christmas theme so this is a stamp set that can be used for some fun Christmas cards as well.  

I hope you will gain some inspiration from this card!  I love sharing the cards I create in hopes that they will bring joy to others!  Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think! I’d love to hear from you!
