Edwin Celebrates Christmas

Hi all!! How are you doing this festive Season? Are you ready to celebrate His Birthday party??

Well.. surely Edwin is! :)
He is already dressed, and is offering you a glass of champagne.. he even got you the glass! :) I did this card for a friend, she wanted a Christmas card for her boyfriend, so I chose Edwin and coupled him with blue tones.

Edwin is coloured in Copics, and blinged with Crystal and Stardust Stickles. Glasses and Champagne bottle are covered in Crystal Lacquer for dimenson and shine.
Papers: Daisy and Dandilion Christmas papers.
Silver organza ribbon, buttons, snowflake brads and twill from stash. Christmas tree charm from Quixotic.

For the inside I used the remaining pieces, and added a computer generated sentiment, dewdrops and Basic Grey Half pearls, both from Roses on Paper. At Summer's Store you can also find the Stickles and distress ink, and Crystal Lacquer that I used. Even Magnolia stamps.. you will find LOTS of these waiting for you there.. why don't you pay her a visit?? :)
Sentiment on bottom panel is part of the sentiment sheets I got with the papers, and I added a jotting point. As you can see, I stamped on this panel a Stampelglede grunge flourish. I'm in love with this set. I stamped it with Weathered Wood Distress ink.

Have a happy weekend. I will still be doing Christmas cards and gifts! I have such demand for them that I HAVE to try and do more during the year. I end up without enough cards for me every year!

Challenges I will enter this card in: Just Magnolia (used the sketch)
Simon Says: want Christmas cards
Creative Belli: want flourishes (I used on the inside)
CRAFT challenge: open to all creations

Thanks for looking
