Its a boy thing!

Good Morning!!!

I hope we are all well? Today I am here with a boy card....yes your read that right a BOY card! and a shabby chic one to boot!

The challenges I would like to enter my card into are the following-

All about Magnolia challenge blog - Anything goes!
Loves Rubber stamps challenge blog - Anything goes!
Marvelous Magnolia challenge blog - Shabby chic
Simply Magnolia- Shabby Chic
Stamp and Create challenge blog - Anything goes
Maja Design - April Mood board.

So for this card I used one of the Edwin stamps from the 'Blue Ribbon' release which came out alongside the 'Pink Ribbon'. I used 'Speak no evil Edwin' from the collection as I thought he looked like he would if he had walked into a surprise bday party and since this is a bday card perfect LOL.

I used papers from the ever gorgeous Maja Design, I love the rich blues in this Autumn basics collection. I coloured Edwin with Distress inks. I used some tags that i found on my travels and a hessian tag. I tied hessian twine through the card.I distressed the edges of the design papers with a distressing tool and  I edged the images with Distress Ink 'Vintage photo'. To add more texture to the card I added some cheesecloth behind.  To finish off I added some metal accents to the alternate corners of the card. The lettering are adhesive stickers also found on my travels.

Hope you like the little guy!
