Minion Card - using the Owl punch

I was recently asked to make a birthday card for a 13 year old girl, Emily, and the subject of the card was to be 'Minions'. These are characters from the 'Despicable Me' film, which is one I have not seen. I had to do some research and called upon one of my team members Caroline Hallett who I know had made some 'Minions' herself using the Stampin' Up! Owl Punch.
It was great fun, although quite fiddly; and I had lots of advice from my children as to which colours I should use and how to best make the eyes and uniforms. 
Here is the completed card:

I used Crushed Curry for the Minion bases, with Pacific point for the dungarees. Our retired 'googly eyes' were added for some detail, and I decided to use the letters of  EMILY's name on the front of each of the dungarees. Happy Big Day is a cute sentiment from the Chalk Talk stamp set which has matching dies. Paper is from our Designer Series Paper stacks, I matched up the two colours from the Minions. Here is a close up of the Minions.

I used the following items in the above card: Owl Builder Punch, Designer Series Paper stacks, Chalk Talk Stamp set and Matching Dies (save 15% when bought as a bundle). Congratulations message from Itty Bitty Banners with matching dies. The hands, feet and dungarees were all made with the Owl Builder Punch.
