Plain and Simple

Good Morning Dear Friends,


It is time for our COLOUR CHALLENGE
over at the MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS CHALLENGE BLOG!

For the month of February
NORMA our fab Design Team Member,
is picking our Challenges.

The colours Norma choose are:

BLUE AND BROWN

Here is her challenge picture:






Here is my card:


I have used EDWIN WITH STOLEN HEART
He is from the SWEET CRAZY LOVE COLLECTION.

I made this card for my 39 year old son's Birthday.
 I didn't want to make it 'pretty' so decided to go 
with PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

I was so lucky to have this Design Paper called
'New Addition' from PEBBLES.
I thought I had used it all - but I had some left :o)

Here is the inside:



Plus a close up of Edwin:


I was planning to make his runners brown  -
but completely forgot to when I got to that
point - DUH....

Please take a trip to our 
to see the rest of
the DT's wonderful creations.

Don't forget you can win a 
$25.00 GIFT CERTIFICATE
from DIANA!!


I used buttons from my collection 
and threaded them with coloured floss.
I added Crystal Lacquer to his heart.

I coloured Edwin with Copics:

jeans: B97, B95, B93
skin: E21, E00, E000 & R30, R20
heart: R39, R37, R35
brown on shirt and shoes:
E50, E23, E 25

Thank you very kindly for looking at my work!

I so appreciated all your wonderful
comments about my first two cards in
so long :o)

Wow! I think I'm first here! Very nice card, Candy! Edwin is just perfect for your son's BD card and the colors blue and brown is so appropriate for a guy! Love your CAS card, but it's not really simple with all the details you've put in!

Hugs,
Cami

Cool and delightful card Candy. I agree with you to go with CAS for your son. I think cards for male theme don't look right if the cards are too much fancy details. This one looks awesome for him and he is so lucky to have a talented mom. Happy Valentine's Day to you :-)
Hugs,
Cabio
