This card was for the son of my friend who has successfully gained a first class award for his degree in Chemical Engineering from Herriot Watt University in Edinburgh.  Well done Iain. If you read the post "Birthdays Rock" then you would already know that he was awaiting to hear his results on his birthday.  Don't think he'll forget his 24th birthday in a hurry.  He graduates on the 23rd of June so that will be an excuse to make a graduation card.  Lots of celebrations in this family this year as his sister's 21st birthday cards were pictured in the previous post and their Mum and Dad celebrate their pearl anniversary at the beginning of next month.  Seeing as I was one of their bridesmaids I'd better make a special card to mark the occasion.  Already got an idea in mind, just need to put it into practice.  I've got side tracked with some new stamps and ATCs at the moment.  Just needed a play as there have been too many intense have to be made cards lately.
