Owl Card with Wild Card... FUN!

I just made the cutest set of cards for my DD's birthday coming up the end of the month.  They are the invites to her 14th birthday party!
I cut the card at 5 1/2" inches like I do other cards but this one comes with an envelope... so it is an odd size.  Just so you know it is just over 5" wide.

I cut the base from lime green cardstock and then for the black owl... they only have it as a card so I scooted the image to the side of my gypsy (if you don't have a gypsy for your cricut you are MISSING OUT!) so it only cut out the owl as I couldn't hide one side of the card and not the other.  My solution to not wasting paper!  lol

 I used a scallop punch at 1 3/4" and a circle punch at 1 1/2" to cut the green glitter eyeballs.  The white for the scalloped paper is the paper that comes in scrapbooks.... I save it and use it when it is hidden behind layers or something like in this application. 

Another thing I did was added a piece of white paper behind the owls chest feathers.  My dd wanted it white there...  Finally I put all the layers together and popped dotted the eyes!  Multiply that by 7 and I am done!
