Make a Great Boy - Magnolia-Licious and Wee Stamps Challenge - Card for a Boy

It's time for a new challenge at Magnolia-Licious and Wee Stamps Challenge
This time we are asking for Boy cards so it's the perfect time to grab your favorite Edwin stamp and get creating!
I decided to use Bandage Edwin but went with a general boy encouragement card rather than the expected Get Well Soon card.
Now you know it is going to be Easter soon and Diana has the fabulous Easter Collection in stock and they are there is all their beautiful colored glory so you can see how wonderful they will look when you get them to add to your collection.
Also on show are the new Wee Stamps and they have been colored for your viewing pleasure too!

Card Recipe:
Image - Bandage Edwin
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Shine On by Basic Grey
Sentiment Tag - Flair Designs
Buttons - Stash
Twine - Twinery
Metal Corners - Making Memories
Button Brads - The Paper Studio
Argyle Ribbon - Michaels
Orange Ribbon - Unknown
Die Cut - Scallop Dot Square by Spellbinders





I stamped two Edwins, cut out one completely and then cut the head and legs on the second and popped it with foam on top of the whole image. The sticker tag was just the perfect size for Edwin to sit on and it was the basis for the whole card.
I hope you like this and we'd love to see you over at Magnolia-Licious and Wee Stamps Challenge playing with us on this challenge.
