Hello! Owl and Dotty Birthday Cards

This first card has been sitting on my desk for a week or so. I got it done and took a picture, but didn't take the time to edit it until today. Then I saw there was a small scrap of paper laying right on top of the background paper. Ooops. Had to take a new photo. Looks better. 
Anyway, saw this design on Pinterest here and thought it was adorable.

Here's my take on it. Using Doodlebug Happy Harvest with a smidge of kraft paper. The pearls are from Michaels if I remember correctly. Those owls sure are cute!

Then I saw this card on Pinterest as well and had to create my own stamped version. I showed Jessica and she thought the dots were a paper, not stamped. Awwww, thanks honey. 

CTMH ink(Watermelon, Sunflower and Orange), cardstock and a bit of Bo Bunny Double Dots paper with some CTMH sparkle gems and some pink gems from Michaels (most likely). I also used a ribbon banner stamp from a stamp set that comes with the Artiste cartridge. The labels are cut with the Artiste cartridge. 
I used dot stamps from Papertrey Ink's Dot Basics set...have had that one for a lonnnnng time. Happy Birthday is from PTI's Birthday Basics set. 
Gosh it was fun to stamp the dots.
Thanks for stopping by. 
I've got one more to share in a new post. 
The "feel" of the card is less cutesy, so I decided to post it separately.

I agree, I thought it was background paper! You do a great job of random stamping! These designs are simple but very appealing and could lend themselves to many types of cards! Nice work! Hugs!

Ooooh these are so great!! I love the little owl card! I clicked on the link and saw you pinned that from me! I knew it looked familiar :D Yours is awesome though! And I agree with Jessica, sure would have thought that was background paper. Love those fun colors too! You're on a roll girl! Keep it up!

Soooo that's NOT background paper?! Omgoodness! You ROCK at random stamping, too! I love how both cards turned out, but that second one, just wow's me with those perfectly placed dots!
