New Stamp with Fun Challenge #1 - All Boy Edwin

I'm so happy to be back with a card I made for the new Stamp with Fun challenge blog.  What a great sketch layout to start off with too - and I certainly stamped with fun let me tell you!!  I decided to pull out my poor neglected Edwins!!  This is a new Edwin that I hadn't inked up yet and had fun playing around with 'boy' stuff instead of lots of girlie pinks and bling, lol!!  It was a bit more challenging to find co-ordinating 'boy' paper but I think what I've done here works pretty well.  I found that distressing the papers a bit gave the card a bit more of a 'cool dude' feel - what do you think?
I can't go without a flower on my cards and even though this is a boy card I just twisted up some twine and put that in the middle of my Prima flower to add a bit more of a boy feel.  The arrows are a cuttlebug die cut.  I coloured Edwin with my copics and the sentiment was one of those $1.50 polymer sets from Michaels.
Well, I'm gonna keep on playing 'cos the weather is miserable outside - can you believe we had a snow storm this morning!!  I thought we were all done with that - hopefully it won't stick around! Thanks for paying me another visit - I am quite overwhelmed with all the beautiful comments you leave me!!

Hi Danielle, I read your comment on Jacqui's blog about the Gorjuss girl stamps. They are available at Funky Kits.
They ship abroad for a flat rate of £2.45, which I think is less than $2.
and they are a great company to use.
Hope this helps and if the link doesn't work just type in Funky Kits into your search bar.
If you would like some images stamping out Email me with your address.
Great boy card, lovely colours and great work on the challenge.
hugs Heather xx
