Edwin with Binoculars Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge DT Card

Good morning and today it's time for the Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge hosts by our sweet Designer Teammate LINDA. This time Linda picked the following picture to challenge you creating a project.

I created a square white card with a red border. I saw the navy on the cake top of this pictures and remember I bought Edwin with Binoculars of the 2010 Bon Voyage Collection from Magnolia-licious. This image is so cute and I really wanted to use Edwin for a card since I haven't use him for a while. The sentiment "Thank You" is from the 2011 Sweet Rainbow Collection. Because the sentiment is to do with rainbow, I hand drawn some rainbow coloring on it. I found some cloud brads that I put away and finally got a chance to use them.

Don't forget, by joining this challenge, one lucky winner will be randomly pick to win a $25.00 Magnolia-licious gift certificate. Hope to see your creation at the Challenge blog.

I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Totally Papercrafts Challenge - One for the boys
The Crafty Pad Challenge 131 - Embossing Heat & Dry
Craft Ann's Challenge 45 - Dry embossing/Debossing (or both)
Totally Gorjuss Challenge 90 - Punch or Die
The Poodles Parlour Challenge - White, Red & Blue

Herer is a closer view of Edwin

And a closer view of the sentiment
