Safari Edwin

Hello there!
Today I've finally put together a card using my gorgeous Safari Edwin (he's been coloured for ages and just sat in my box)! I've used the fabulous sketch from Friday Sketchers this week. I used a piece of scrapbook paper from stash for the octagonal panel. The back panel is embossed so that means I can enter this into the Just Magnolia challenge for this week, embossing!
Onto the card, I coloured with my copics. Edwin is adhered with 3D foam dots as are the jungle leaves. I used my airbrush to colour a white prima flower so it looks more like a jungle flower! The sentiment is computer generated which I die cut using the spellbinders tags. I ran brown ribbon through and adhered it to the card.
I'm really happy with the final result of this card. Magnolia has a special challenge on this weekend to create a winter card/project for exclusive publication in their Magnolia Ink magazine. Check out the link here. I'm thinking I might just enter it so I've been working on something this afternoon. Of course, I can't blog it but I figured I would have a go - they can only turn you down right?? I don't often enter these sorts of thing 'cos I don't figure I'm good enough, but what the heck, won't know if you don't try!!
Well, thanks for popping by! We're enjoying another glorious weekend of sunshine! My mother-in-law arrives tomorrow for a 2 wk visit so not too sure how much inky time I'll be getting in! I hope you're all enjoying your weekend! Thanks so much for all your beautiful comments - they are truly appreciated!
