Just Magnolia & Magnolia Down Under Challenges

Hi there!
I hope you are all well.  I found a little crafting time this afternoon and managed to do this card and combine 2 challenges in 1!  The sketch layout is from Just Magnolia and MDU was to create a card for Mother's Day.  This Edwin image is a cutie I received from Linda and as I have 3 boys thought it would make such a cute Mother's Day card with Edwin giving roses for his mom!  I loved the sketch - it was really fun to work with.  I coloured Edwin with my copics and I used black on his trousers for the first time - it's a tough colour to work with!  Not sure I'm happy with the end result - more practising required!!  The papers are K&Co.  I sewed around the edges for some simple detailing.  Pearl brads and a small rose/flower ensemble finishes the card off.   I also added Diamond Stickles to Edwin's wings.
To create the sentiment I stamped it with Black Stazon on shrink plastic, used a circle nestie die cut, punched a hole then used my heat gun to heat and shrink.  I am really happy with the way it turned out!  Here's a close up of my handmade charm.

Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to look and post a comment!  I love reading all your comments, they truly make my day a happier one!
Hugs,
Danielle x
