Poor Edwin!

Happy Tuesday Friends!


Hope you are all doing well.



Today is:

  MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

Our very sweet and talented CHRIS
is our Hostess for January and here is her
INSPIRATION PHOTO:


I saw a lot of possibilities with this picture.

It was really hard to decide - so I went
with blue, the trees and the cold.

Here is my card:


Poor Edwin - he must be so tired of falling down!

As you can see I have used a lot of blue
but I did get some clouds and a couple of
bare trees in there.

SKI  EDWIN WITH SNOWFLAKES #117
is from the "2012 Christmas Story Collection.

I really scuffed up all the edges of my card with my Zutter Tool.
Then edged everything with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain.

I used Magnolia Clouds die as well
as Magnolia Border Lace Die.
I also used Marianne Die for the trees.

I put SU Dazzling Diamonds for the snowflakes
and course Glitter for the snow.
I also used Sparkly Fluff for his hat :o)
I used SU Tempting Turquoise Card Stock
and Nit Wit design paper.

Here are a few more pictures:




Oh! Did you notice the tag in the upper right corner?
Another tag die from Magnolia, with seam binding.
