Tweet Tweet Challenge: Take 2 (and a birthday card)

I really liked the bird challenge over at Unity Stamp Co., so I decided to give it a second go. Not entirely happy with the results. I should have dug around more in my stuff for a better frame, but it was late. The card is for my Grandma, and I know she won't care. I do like how the owls and word bubble turned out though. (Sorry for the terrible pictures).

It's hard to see, but there are little word bubbles in VersaMark all round the page.
The thought bubble was also stamped in VersaMark and then cut out.
I just used some random cardstock for everything. The images and sentiments were from the Unity Set: Lollypop Tree You and Me. I used VersaMark Dazzle Frost for all the VersaMark stamping. The owls were colored with some blending chalk by Plaid and some markers I had on hand for accents.

On to the birthday card. My husband is turning 29 this Friday and I decided to make him a card using the Unity Set: All About Today. Really, I just wanted to use this set and I figured I could make it work for a birthday card. Here's the end result.

I used some VersaMark (can be seen in the up close shot below), the YOU stickers are from Studio 112 (bought at JoAnns), the exclamation point is by SandyLion (love this set), and the happy and birthday sticker borders are by Flair Designs.

Thanks for looking.
