Shy Edwin

Edwin is just so cute and isn't used often enough by me. I just got this one recently and finally had a moment to create. The grass has been growing so fast this spring that all I seem to do is mow it. Did God really want us to mow grass? lol


This is really a simple card. The dp is from bobunny. I stamped the image and colored him with copics and adhered him to the blue dp. Then I stamped and colored just the rose and popped it up and applied stickles. The corners are scalloped nestabiliites.  In the opposite corners are nailhead stickers. All the nestabilities have a dark blue chalk ink edged around them. A piece of ribbon and it was done - only not near that fast. I agonize over each little step.
I am posting this on the Magnolia Monday blog here
Have a great day. And I would love it if you could take a moment to leave a comment.

I agree Peggie, Edwin gets far too little attention! He's so faithful and always waiting when we need to make a guy card. You've done a beautiful job on this card! I love how you've used the blue panel behind him and your coloring is gorgeous.
Hugs,
