Owls at the bar

I've had more owl dreams and here is one of them. It's 2 owls at the bar sharing a drink. I LOVE the splitcoast sketch295. It is really simple and perfect for what I had in mind. The color challenge this week was Pacific, Razzleberry and Olive which I thought was great as well.
I wanted the owls to be facing the side so I took the belly and put it sideways onto a owl body and cut the body out to create a new belly to have the beak point more to one side.
The base card is Pacific Blue, the background is daffodil embossed with square lattice folder. The bottom panel is Island Oasis DSP folded over. Sentiment and the drink is from Cheers to you. I took the drink, drew another straw with the razzleberry marker and and colored it in with melon and daffodil and covered it with crystal effects to make the glass more real. The wings are from the bird punch and I sponged it with the same color ink as the CS to add a little shadow.

Isn't it cute?
Thanks for looking!
