Happy Birthday!

Hi Friends!

It's time for another Inspiration Challenge 
You may remember that it is Angela's turn for our
challenges this month.

Here is her Inspiration Picture:

Oh I am dying for a piece of this cake!!

Since I couldn't have one, I got down to making my card :o)

This time I used " Edwin with Airplane" #127
from the new Prince and Princess Collection 2012.
This is another order - for a year old Boy.
I thought the stamp was perfect :o)

I have to apologize for the darkness of my pictures.
We have had nothing but snow for I don't know
how long now; and I simply can't get enough light :o(
I hope you can still see the card well enough?

My CS is from SU and is called Almost Amethyst.
Design paper is from DCWV - Nana's Nursery - Boy.
I used TH Antique Linen Distress Ink around each piece of paper.
Pearls, Seam binding, and Stickles were from my stash.
I used a "Clear Dollar Stamp" for both greetings.

Here is a close up of Edwin:

He's just a doll!

Here is the inside left:

Here is the verse a bit closer:

and the right side:

The lady who ordered this is sending it to
Narn, Scotland.  Hope 
 that it gets all that way in good condition!

Sorry to be so short and sweet today.
It has been a busy time for me in the last while.

Awwwwwww! Candy this card is just fabulous! I simply adore Edwin with an airplane and wish I had him! Sigh!!! Love the way you used the birthday theme with all the colors form the inspiration piece! Your pictures turned out well enough in spite of the overcast and snow. My sister lives in Coombs and she told me it had snow/sleeted the other day. Glad I live in Texas!!!
