Three of the guys at work graduated back in May and this is the card that I made each of them on behalf of the Company. As they were all graduating with engineering degrees I thought I'd use 'violet - aka Elegant Eggplant' as my base as this is the colour in their 'hoods'.
I'd seen instructions ages ago on how to make the owl so set about creating an owl for each card. I had to improvise a small heart for the beak as I no longer have the 5-Petal punch. I was really pleased with the finished cards - and so too were the guys when they realised I'd made it especially for them :)
