Edwin's on the Tennis Team!

Happy Edwin just got on the Tennis Team at school and can't wait to play another game.  Well, that's what my imagination says anyway.  I do remember playing tennis in school and I even had a boyfriend who lettered in tennis. Of course, I got to wear his sweater for a while.


I used papers from the Sassafras Sunshine Broadcast collection.  I didn't have the perfect ribbon to use so I colored a white ribbon from Wild Orchard with my Distress Weathered Wood.  The Distress ink was also used to color the edges of all the distressed papers.

Card Recipe
Stamps: Magnolia Edwin Playing Tennis
Paper: Sassafras Sunshine Broadcast, Very Vanilla
Makers and Ink: Copics, Distress Weathered Wood
Embellishments: Spellbinders Fleur De Lis, Basic Grey brad, Wild Orchard ribbon, the last bit of some lace I bought at Stamprs in Victoria, BC


This card will be entered into the following challenges:

Have a wonderful Monday!
