Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - Edwin on the bench

Good evening. I had a day off today and this afternoon I was able to finish a card for the Madness Sketch Challenge. You can check out the details by clicking the link.

The sketch is here:
I used Magnolia Edwin for this challenge. I bought quite a few Magnolia stamps lately, but just didn't get a chance to try them all out. This was my first time using this stamp.

I choose some retired Stampin Up Designer series paper (DSP) for this card. Instead of using my usual cuttlebug embossing folder for texture, I used the Fiskars Crimper this time to roll up the blue background DSP. I've also used the tree image from "Trendy Trees" stamp set by Stampin Up for additional embellishment and sentiment on this card. Since it was an unisex theme card, I tried not to use too much flowers and ribbons although I've added just a little.

Since I have family visiting in town this week, I think I might be taking a bit longer to do another card challenge, but will try my best to do more soon!

Thank you for stopping by!

Here is my card:

Hi Cabio...Love your Edwin card it turnerd out so very cute! I like how you used your crimper on the blue paper. I tend to forget about using my crimper. Enjoy your family time. Look forward to your next card.

Hi Cabio...What a wonderful challenge and your little Edwin on the bench is so perfect for it. I forgot that I even owned a cripmer, so out it will have to come. Your piece is awesome! I think the inside of the card is delightful. Such a great card inside and out....
