Magnolia Edwin on Christmas Eve Birthday Card

Good morning. I prepared a birthday card today to share with you. I am not so good at doing boy/men theme cards. Since I think this Edwin on Christmas Eve of the Sweet Christmas Dream Collection from Magnolia-licious is so cute and I just couldn't resist to use him on a project.

I am using this card for the following challenges:
Card Makin Mamas Challenge #39 - Happy Birthday
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge #73 - Masculine Birthday
Hot Shot Craft Challenge #4 - One for the boys
Paper Sundaes Challenge #108 - Birthdays
Dream Valley Challenge #26 - Just for Men
Here Come the Boys Challenge #21 - Vintage Feel

Here is the finished birthday card

Thank you for stopping by today and hope to see you again soon for more projects sharing soon :o)
