this is so funny. I'm glad you varied the owl's head shapes, brings out their individual character more, haha.

Really cute illustration! If it were mine I might try the talk bubbles in a solid color without an outline so they tie in with the rest of the illustration. Then I would switch over to a more casual sans-serif font. Baskervile seems a little too formal for such a fun card. I especially love the texture around the edges of the sky :) I would definitely be the owl thinking about a cupcake!
