A Wise Old Owl Turns Another Year Older

What do you get if you mix up Happy Hour, Owly Inspiration, a Critter Sketch, and a Birthday all together?
An Old Martini Drinking Owl celebrating his Birthday! Well, that's what I came up with in a card for these challenges.  And I threw in the colors Brown, Navy, Orange and Ivory for Stamp TV's color challenge.
Cupcraft Craft Challenge: Happy Hour-create something to do with drinks.
Little Red Wagon: Take inspiration from an Owl.
Critter Sketch Challenge: Sketch by Michelle on the right.
Party Time Tuesdays: Anything Goes Birthday
Stamp TV: Color challenge is to use at least three of the colors in Janice's inspiration photo -Brown, Navy Blue, Orange, Ivory, and Gray

Stamp: Jessica Lyn Originals "Owl" Clear Stamp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo black and Rich Cocoa
      SU Not Quite Navy, Copics for Owl
Paper: GKD PL Navy, Ivory
           Orange CS from Stash
Cuttlebug: EF Diamonds...embossing on navy does not show well in photo
Punch: Martha Stewart Goo
Nesties: Square and Scalloped Squares
Words and Sentiments printed on Computer
Martinis from Clip art on Print Shop...printed on CS and cut out.
Ribbons from Stash ...does not show- but there is a brown satin under the orange one

By the way, the wise old owl having a birthday this coming week is my DH.
