Happy Birthday Harry

For our Challenge today on CCEE Stampers, hostess Lynn has given us a triva challenge.
You may or may not know that July 31 is the day that both Harry Potter and his creator, J. K. Rowling celebrate their birthdays. Today the challenge is to create a card or project that honors the remarkable literary character, Harry Potter.

When I think of Harry Potter, it takes me back to the first book in the series that I had read.
When my daughter did speech and drama she did an impromptu reading, a section of Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets. A book that we had never heard of but it had sparked the interest to discover them.
I used stampendous Pop up Forest stamp and die sets to create a Whomping willow with Hedwig hiding in the foliage

  I made the center into a pop up card using the Lucy Label pop up die, Designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I had found this designer paper in my supplies and it looked like it could be in the forbidden forest. I used the foliage stamps and turned them into a bush with Hedwig hiding again.

Join us at CCEE Stampers to see what the others have made. I know I am looking forward to seeing their creations.
