First, I just want to say, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRIGHTON!!!!!! This little boy is the sweetest thing ever! Although I have never met Brighton, he has brightened many of my days with that precious little smile! And those 2 little fingers, he is always sucking on those 2 fingers!!! LOVE him!
This is the card I made for him. I ued the owl from KaDoodle Bug Design's "Woodland Friends" which you can get here, Woodland Friends. Original artwork for this file is by Kristi W Designs.
He's on an action wobble, so he bounces all around!

Hope you all like, and I hope Brighton & Shawnee like it too!!
