I am here today with a boy card, and a special boy card its for my hubbys bday in a few months time, shhhhh dont tell him!!!
The challenges I would like to enter my card into are the following-
Time for a Magnolia Challenge- Male/boy masculine card
lovely hAnglar or Sweet Magnolia- Use a die cut
Paradise of stamps- Anything goes
Stamp and Create- Summer fun
Tilda's Town Challenge blog- Use dies cut or punchs
Magnolia-licious- Sun, sea , sand
So boy cards arnt the easiest thing in the world then I saw this stamp- 'Edwin in Miami' and something clicked, a memory from a few year ago when we were on the beach and there was a starfish that was on the sand still alive and hubby popped it back in the water for me so it would be ok. And there is Edwin with his starfish!!! Perfect!
So for Edwin I coloured him with Distress inks. The paper is from Kaisercraft. I used lots of Magnolia dies on this card and also from Impression Obsession.
Now as most people know we have two Hermit crabs for pets, so I found these cool buttons from Dress it up and there was a crab!!! Now I know hubby will like that!!! The other buttons are of shells. I added a shell embellie to the fence and to the cheesecloth behind Edwin I added a starfish charm...kinda had to really!!! The ribbon behind is the perfect 'boy card' ribbon- hessian!
Finally I edged the image with DI 'Tumbled glass' to add to that beachy seaside feel.
Hope you enjoyed your time at the beach with Edwin!
