I chose to use Sitting Wedding Edwin from the recently released Wedding Collection. I masked Edwin so he is sitting on the log. New to masking? Be sure to check out my tutorial here. I think he is just adorable all decked out in his green jacket and orange/red rose. I used the Magnolia Doohickey swirl dieSpellbinders Labels 11, Made with Love charm

and Happy Birthday sentiment from the new SWL Celebrate collection.
