Sepia 'Blue Ribbon Edwin'

Hi guys!

Hope we are all well today?

I am here with my very first Sepia colouring with Distress Inks. It took a while to get my head round the colours but got there lol!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges-

All About Magnolia Challenge - Bingo- Full house
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog - Poker dots
Tildas Town - Fussy and fancy or clean and layered

So for this challenge I used the gorgeous papers from the every fabulous Maja Design. I love the brown shades that Maja do.  I used See no Evil Edwin from the 'Blue Ribbon' collection that Magnolia released in support of Prostrate Cancer.  I stamped Edwin on a piece of die cut water colour paper- the die is the torn notebook from the Tim Holtz and Sizzix collaboration.

The dies are a mix of Go Kreate, Magnolia, and Spellbinders.

I used poker dot brown ribbon which edges the burlap. Beneath the burlap is some light brown lace.  For the metal Embellie it had to be Tim Holtz embellies- I used a metal tassel and a pen nib

The flowers are from WOC.

To add some bling- I had to hold myself back as this is a boy card lol- I added cream and brown flat back pearls and rhinestones. Also, I couldnt resist adding this lovely brown bling to the bottom of the card.

I finished off with mini alphas to spell out 'Bday boy'. The I used Gesso on ALL of the die cuts! Love that stuff!!!

Hope you have a lovely day!
