Edwin's going to a Birthday Party!

Hi!! I was invited at noon today to go to a Birthday Party at 4:00. The young man was turning the age of majority and I had to think of a quick Birthday card! I am not quick at anything these days - least of all a card. It takes me all day to make ONE. So I decided to leave out the inside as he probably won't keep the card anyway and just do the front of this one. I never worked so fast before......I was finished the card, showered, dressed and out the door in time to help make the birthday supper.

A big shout out to Pam Sparks who let me know about the Challenge this week at Copic Creations.
It is a black challenge, and since I did some black on Edwin I have entered my card there. You must go check out the DT's work - AWESOME INDEED!!!!

Please excuse the pictures - my photo editing program is not working and I was in so much hurry I did not take the time to clear my desk before taking the picture.

I used Bazzil cream card stock and all the DP are from Bo Bunny ' Back to Back'. Of course I coloured Edwin with my Copics. I used crystal lacquer on the two glasses and I used stickles on Edwin's wings and the stars. I stamped the star with my SU 'In the Stars' set and cut it out by hand. Wrapped SU gold cord around the star and also hung a tiny star charm from the cording. The star is mounted with 3 D tape. I didn't have time to search for a sketch so just put a few papers together for this one.

Here is a picture of Edwin a bit closer.

This is a very short post but thought you might like to see Edwin tonight.
I hope to get going here and get a lot of cards made - but my husband is away and I have been trying to get a lot done around the house while he is gone. My days are flying by and I am exhausted before I ever get to sit down!
Thanks for taking the time to peek at my card :o)
Love Candy
