Harry Potter Owl pocket card

I've something a little different to my beloved butterflies to show you today - a Harry Potter-themed pocket card featuring my favourite owlie friend, dressed up as Harry.

I made this for Cara to give Damien for his birthday back in November. She had a great idea to get Damien tickets to the Harry Potter exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.....yes, we're all big Harry Potter fans, so I want a Harry themed card. I also love dressing up owlie, so I went had a bit of a play & came up with what you see here. I also tried a bit of curling & distressed  for a more vintage look...well, as distressed as I do anyway.
Anyhoo, here is Harry Owl for his close-up - very simple, but I think kind-of Harry like. All the bits as made using shapes from the owl punch.
I wanted to include the tickets in the card, so a pocket card was the best option. I found a couple of free HP like fonts online & used them for the inside message. Cara was pretty impressed with that!. By the way, the card front is approx 21cm x 10cm & fitted a DL envelope.
It was a lot of fun to make & it made Damien smile, so that's a win in my book. Hope you like it too.
That's it for me tonight - must finish the post before my battery runs out. Thanks very much for visiting. Hope you pop in again soon.
Inky wishes, Di
