Thinking of you on your birthday

Hello again, wow 2 spontaneous posts in one day! I was going to post this tomorrow but thought bugger it, i may as well just do it now. This is the Edwin from the new raising the ceiling collection bought from Kellie at the Magnolia Down Under Store. I adore him!! I stamped him several times as soon as I got him and have a couple already coloured in and waiting to be used. He is just sooooo sweet and an absolute dream to colour in, he is probably my favourite stamp in the collection. I know, if you told me my fave was going to be an Edwin I would not have believed you, after getting a sneak peek at a few before the release I thought it would be Nobel Tilda, she just make me smile in those high heels :) but I just love him, he's too sweet.
Anyways, I just had to create something with him. Even though it's got Edwin on it I went for a girly kinda card, lost of sparkle and flowers. I have inked, distressed and glittered all my edges. I have a few pearl head pins amongst the flowers, which I managed to restrain myself from glittering also (it was not easy but I managed to do it, or not do it, as the case may be)
Well, enough waffling, here is it...

This card plays along with:
Just Magnolia - Birthdays
A spoon full of sugar - Use distress inks, pearls and glitter
Cute card Thursday - Ribbon-tastic
The pink elephant - Add green (do the leaves amongst my flowers count?)

Brilliant colouring. Your shading is perfect. I can't see a problem with a boy having a bit of glitter! Most hubbies I know wake up with glitter somewhere on them! ;D Just read your fab news over at Kellie's blog. Congrats Fran. Well deserved. Love your creations and can't wait to see what you do at MDUC.
