Happy Birthday Ornate and Owl Card

This is my 2nd card this week as Card Captain at the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo Group.
For this card I chose brown and light blue as the dominant colors, and Michael Strong Cloisonné Owl Stamp as my main motif.

Supplies used:
White leather textured CS for the card's basis
Chocolate brown CS
Light blue CS (from the white CS pack cover)
Basic Grey patterned paper
White recycled CS for stamping (from a tea pack)
Sizzix Bigz Ornate Plate Die
Michael Strong Cloisonné Owl Stamp
Emboss Ink
Michael Strong embossing powder - Weathered Copper
Light blue blings in various sizes
Clear blings
3D double-sided foam tape

I stamped Michael Strong's Cloisonné Owl using Emboss Ink, and heat embossed it using Michael Strong embossing powder - Weathered Copper.
It has a unique color mixture, which gives a very special and beautiful result.
I carefully cut it with scissors, colored it using ProMarkers, and added clear blings for the Owl's eyes.
Then I layered the papers, glued the Ornate Plate die and added the Owl 3D.
Finally, I added light blue blings in various sizes for extra glam.
