Garden Hugs From Edwin

When I made this card I was thinking of the Just Magnolia challenge #107 even though I made it during this weekends VSN challenge at Split Coast Stampers.  I love this Edwin image because it reminds me of my youngest son (age 23).  The hair and clothes are just what he would wear, even the purple tie.



This particular challenge, as a pirate (the VSN theme) we were to scope out a favorite designer and make something similar to their work.  I chose Norma of From My Craft Room.  I love her work for its variety and quality craftsmanship.  The thing I liked about her most recent card was the use of a Magnolia garden fence with her image on the outside and inside of the card.

So, with JM's #107 challenge in mind I made a card with Edwin and a garden fence.  My fence comes from MelJen's Designs at Whimsy Stamps.  In the Magnolia way I added lots of Prima and Recollections flowers with springs from a MS punch.  The dp is from a set of Stampin Up out of the Spring Mini.

I also entered this card in the following challenges:

I have more cards to show you from the VSN but that will have to wait until I recover from cleaning my workroom after making 16 different challenge cards in as many hours.

Happy Stamping!
