This card was made using three challenges:
Inspritational Card Sketches - sketch
The Cuttlebug Spot - Masculine or Father's Day
Lili of the Valley - paper piecing

This card uses Edwin from Magnolia Stamps. It is made using green and blue designer papers. Edwin is matted on a green friendship mat that is made using the cuttlebug. I added white ink for added dimension of the embossing.
I colored Edwin with my Copic markers and made him have red hair like my grandson. It almost matches perfectly.

The inside of the card uses pieces of the embossing from the front and has them scattered on the left side of the card. On the right side of the card is one word with a blue matting with a children s poem. There is also a coordinating envelope.
This card is for sale on ebay if you are interested. You can see it here.
