It's Edwin!!!

Surprise!! Edwin is here to see you today :o)

Poor fellow - none of us use him as much as we should.

I decided it was long past due for him to come out and say hi!

This is my card for the MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS CHALLENGE BLOG this week.

The COLOUR CHALLENGE this week comes from NORMA!  What a beautiful card maker she is - I think you all will agree :o)

She has picked for the CHALLENGE - Only BLACK, WHITE, and ONE OTHER colour.
Here is her picture:

Isn't that something! I love it :o)

For my card I choose the colour RED for my third colour.

My image is: EDWIN WITH TULIPS BEHIND HIS BACK # 107 at Diana's Store

Here is my card:

This is my very first time to colour white and black and I must say I am having trouble 
liking poor Edwin's face!
I am sure I will get used to it soon though and one of these days I will try 
a complete card in just the two colours of black and white.
I am very happy that my first attempt can have the third colour to brighten it all up :o)

Here are a couple of close ups for you.

One of the bow and button:

Another of Edwin up close so you can see the bit of Stickles on his wings and roses.

I really had to scrounge for paper this time. I have so little of it.

The black with white ticking came from: Close to My Heart

The white with black polka dots came from: Stampin'Up

The black with large red polka dots, I made with a hole punch and my Stampin'Up
Basic Black and Real Red.

The pearls are from Stampin'Up too.

The ribbon arrived on a gift at Christmas and the button was in my button jar. I simply 
tied it with scrappers white floss before attaching it to the ribbon.

Here are my Copic Colours - so MANY of them this time * grin:

C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C0, C00
R39, R37, R35, R32

Thank you so much for visiting me today.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
