Ouch! Edwin Card Keepsake - Wall Decor




Wow, talk about have internet problems last night.
I tried updating my blog with my new design but the net was so slow that I decided to wait till this morning.  It's a lot better now thank goodness :)


Before I introduce you to my new design, I just want to remind you of my blog candy.  It expires soon & I don't want you to miss out.  You can enter here.







Finally, I was able to spend a few hours yesterday to complete my new 'Ouch Edwin' Card Keepsake.







The ticket stamps are from Whimsy Stamps.  It's the first time I have used them :)  Check out the helicopter charm dangling by some jute.







This is the actual front of the card.
I am really pleased that I was able to use 8 buttons from my 'oldies' stash :)
I knew I would be able to use them somewhere down the line lol







Here you have the full Card Keepsake - Wall decor for boys.
Edwin looks quite cute in his surroundings I reckon lol.
Not bad for my first boyish design.  I quite enjoyed putting it all together :)







I decorated the inside of the card to compliment the outside.







I ended up using 4 different DP's, distressed the canvas a little bit more to give it more definition.  I wasn't too sure about the doily & using the flower but I think it softens the design a little bit.








I have added a name tag at the bottom so that the Card Keepsake can be personalized, however I haven't adhered it yet as it's new owner may want it on there or maybe not :)  Choice is a wonderful thing.








So there you have it.  Ouch Edwin.
I personally think he would make a perfect 'Get Well Soon' gift, don't you?







I've popped Ouch Edwin into my
