Little Owls - Anniversary

Hello to all my crafty friends today.
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend.  I've had a really busy one painting the kitchen! Why does decorating one room make the whole house end up in such a mess??
Hopefully it will all be back in it's usual place by the end of today and I must say I'm really pleased with how it looks.
I'm sharing this card today which was made recently for my Mum and Dad's anniversary. My Mum just loves owls and I'd seen this cute clipart image online and thought it would be perfect for an anniversary image.
I cut it out with my xcut circle shape cutter and layered it with a die cut scalloped circle.
I wanted to try and keep this one a little more CAS than normal. I added a dotty embossed panel and some layered punched hearts and die cut a swirl to carry through the branch effect. As my Dad's favourite colour is green that had to play a part too! You can't really see from the photo but I decoupaged the girl owl's head. A few little pearls finished it off.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
