Edwin's Adventures .... A Shadow-Box card

Hello my friends!
This is the last of my cards for my class at Heather's next Saturday. I decided to use Edwin - he so often gets neglected and passed over for the beautiful Tilda, but I feel bad 'cos he really is such a cutie too!
I decided to send Edwin on a safari adventure and the shadow-box style card is perfect for incorporating many images onto one card. I sure wish I was going with him.......brings back lovely memories of the safari I did take! The images are coloured with my copics. We will be colouring the images though with Tombow markers in the class. I put the little stool in the other corner and even though I don't have the cat it would sit beautifully on there to add some extra detail should you wish. I would have liked Magnolia to have included some 'adventure' type sentiments or postage stamps like they have in their christmas collections. Maybe they'll think about adding some as they would be perfect to go with these images!
I didn't go with any embellishments on this card - I wanted the images to just lead the way! The aperture is cut out with the largest square nestie. I added glossy accents to the jeep's windows to give the look of glass (hard to see in the picture).
There you have it. Looking out of my window I know where I'd rather be - I'll go on a Tilda & Edwin Tour any day, lol!!!
Hope you all enjoy a wonderful Saturday. Thanks for popping by for a visit today - I love that you take the time to leave me a comment - I really love reading them!

Hi Danielle,
This is a fantastic boy card. Edwin is sweet and I must plead guilty to using him sparingly and normally with Tilda.
Great colours and combined image.
