Celebrate With Celery!

A few times here and there I have talked about my creative process, how I tend to start with either a colour combination or a layout and go from there. Well, this card had completely different origins. Occasionally my girls will watch the tv show Wonder Pets. One of the catch-phrases on the show is "celebrate with celery"... I had this card half designed in my head - I had seen this Di Hickman sketch and thought it would suit - and then I found myself thinking about how the owl was "whoo hoo-ing" in celebration and the rest is history lol.
