Gatefold Owl Card

As my friend is a 'Tawny Owl' in her Brownie pack, I usually make her a card with an owl on.   This time I decided to make an owl shaped card.  
I bought the Sizzix 'Owl Fold A Long' set of dies quite a long time ago in a sale, but never used them.  One of those offers that was too good to resist!  So I decided it was time I got the dies out of the packet.  I used the same patterned paper for the outside decoration and also the inside flaps.  

I kept the inside owl shape white so I could write the birthday greeting here.
