Owly Friends - Windshield Wiper Card

I simply adore cards that slides, twists, unfolds or in other words - does something. So it was wonderful to discover this Windshield Wiper card. It is so easy to make this,  but it brings so much joy, when after pulling card tabs you see something else revealing from the card top.
I used Pink Cat Studio Hooty Owl Stamps. I like that trio of owls so much. And as this was a card for my dear friend Linda, I hand-wrote under them sentiment saying: "Friends Come To Visit". These owls were not colored with ProMarkers, but watercolored with Distress inks, to achieve more subtle coloring.
After pulling tabs another owl is revealed and a sentiment saying: Hip, hip hurrah!" These papers that I've used are from Dovecraft Sweet Owl collection - how appropriate :) And all I added were just some paper flowers and that's it!

I will enter this card in these challenges:
Card Cupids Blog - More than 1 fold;
Mark's Fines Papers - Use Scraps (and that's all I do recently)
Dream Valley - Anything Goes

Have a hooty good day,
