Magnolia Robin Hood Edwin for challenges

Good morning and happy Sunday. I had a very productive night yesterday. I was able to finished a few cards. Here is one of them and I am using this card for the following challenges:

Deb's Creation May/June Challenge - Boy card
Friday Sketchers #102 - sketch by Tanja
LLWWC #38 - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday #112 - Someone Special
PaperPlay Challenge 10-Week19 - Brown and ?
Craft Ann's Challenge #14 - Anything Goes
Stampin For the Weekend - A card for a male
Our Creative Corner - Masculine Birthday
Secret Crafter Challenge #83 - Metal (metal brads)

Here is my finished card. I don't normally make male theme card, but I got this Sherwood Edwin image that I bought and really think I should try it out, so I did. I received a package from my blogger friend, Linda C last week. Sweet Linda sent me some embellishment goodies and the little cute hinge grungeboard on the middle left of this card is part of the embellies from Linda. Thank you so much Linda, it fits so lovely on this card :o)

Here is the little cute hinge from Linda and I added metal brads and a piece of rhinestone on the hinge.
