Shall I compare thee...


Hello lovely peeps!
It's time for an Edwin challenge at Just Magnolia! I'm guessing not many of us are thrilled about that; putting aside all those lovely girly papers and lace and ribbons doesn't sound that much fun...hehe. So we also have the option for you to make a Father's Day project which, of course, may carry a Tilda image on:). Now, that sounds more interesting, isn't it? 
I'm not a big Edwin fan, that's why my Magnolia collection only counts 3 Edwins, so  I chose this cute one with a lovely butterfly for my card today. I wanted it to be more romantic, it didn't turn out great but for an Edwin card it looks nice...lol. 


And a close-up:


I chose not to add many layers, these DCWV papers are too beautiful to be covered. I just love them!

Supplies:
Medium: copics/promarkers
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, ribbon  and metal buttrefly; button from Bunny Zoe- Almanach collection, Tim Holtz film strip.
Misc; distress ink- Walnut Stain, stickles, glitter, pearls
Dies: Magnolia- heart swirl
Sentiment: sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare written in Photoshop,
sentiment-computer generated

Challenges for my card:
Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday – Stitching, Inspire Me Fridays – Always Anything Goes, Pattie's Creations - include a digi / stamped image -Fathers Day / Male, Phindy’s Place -Fathers Day / Masculine, Stampin' For The Weekend - Bugs & Butterflies, Crafty Ribbons -Butterflies & bows, DRS Designs -Anything that can fly, Southern Girls -Things with wings, Through the Craftroom Door -Distressing, Whimsy Inspiration -things with wings.

And a sneak peek of the inside. Just click on the photos to enlarge them so you can read the sonnet.




Tha's it from me today; hope you will join us for the Edwin/Father's Day challenge! Let's not forget there are so many boys in our lives and they deserve cards too!!!



Have a lovely weekend! Enjoy sun and quality time with your loved ones!

Hugs,
