Happy Sweet 16!

I'm back on this beautiful Sunday to share with you the card I made for my younger daughter's 16th birthday, which was on Friday.
Here's the birthday girl!

She just had her hair colored purple, (yes, purple!) as part of her birthday present, and today we are going to see Finding Dory at our local theater.  Her party was yesterday at the state park where my husband works.  I hope she had fun this weekend!
Now, here's the card:
Of course, it's a shaker!  Her favorite color is blue, hence the color choices.  The owl and the card base are both Silhouette cut files.  You can find the owl here, and the card here.  Now that I'm looking, there are some other cute owls I should!  I added a generous amount of Wink of Stella to the owl and to the words on the card.  If you look at "happy," you can see glimpses of it on the first "p" and the "y."  She enjoyed her card!  *whew!*
