Starting big school!

A card to give my niece as she starts the next chapter in her life.

I have used a 8x8in white card and matt and layered it with lilac card and white embossed card. I rounded the corners with a punch. I have die cut the owl using a Xcut die and paper from a pad from Lidl. I have printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a rectangular die from Tonic and cut the next size in the two tones to match the owl. I completed the card with Tonic Nuvo drops.
