Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday, again another different weather day here, and yup got my washing done! #happy!!!
Today I am here with a card that I would like to enter into the following challenges-
Midweek Magnolias - Bows and Buttons
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge Blog- Anything goes
Stamping Sensations - Anything goes with an image and a die
Magnolia Forever - Use 3 or more patterned papers
So for this card I used the ever cute Edwin, and this time its 'Beefeater Edwin' from the Little London Collection. Now for a change I cracked out my Inktense Pencils which I am still getting to grips with.
Now for the papers....well I have had this paper for ages and yup I will confess that I have been hanging on to it...but not anymore! This house has Ashes fever so thought I would use it for a very English card. The paper is the 'Portobella Road' from Papermania and I will confess again, I went a bit crazy and bought the stamps, the ribbons, the bows, the buttons and the embossing folders lol! I just couldnt help myself!!!
The dies I used are from Magnolia and Tim Holtz. I used the Weathered Clock' from Tim Holtz as the guards change on the chiming of the clock so needed to have a clock somewhere on this card!!! I also used the castle die as no London right without the tower of London! I also added a Prima Grandfather clock to tie in with the clock die. The ribbon yup thats from the collection. The buttons on the flags at bottom, yup from the collection and the ribbon on the Prima clock...yup you guessed it from the collection!
Around the image I edged it with Distress Ink 'Festive Berries' and stamped in 'Vintage Photo' the stamp that yup came with the collection, saying Portobella Road' Told you I had gone crazy buying this!
On the inside I used another stamps from yup (this is becoming a habit!) from the collection of the button and the telephone box.
Hope you have a lovely week ahead!
