Game On Edwin - Happy Birthday Card

Happy Sunday Friends!

Wow, where did August go, it's September 1st already. 
We have had the most amazing summer here in Vancouver,
gorgeous weather everyday. Hopefully the good weather
will carry through in September for a little longer.

Today I have a card to share with you that I made for:
GDT card for ABC Challenge ~ U for Unlimited (Anything goes),
DT card for The Ribbon Girl ~ Use numbers.

This cute image is Magnolia's Game On Edwin.
When I first saw this image, I knew right away I can use it for
my son's birthday card. My son Eric loooves Nintendo Mario
and the initial "E" on Edwin's hat can also be for Eric :^)!

I water colored the image with Distress Ink pads and made some 
Nintendo game characters using die cuts and punches.
I added a few pieces of tiny Ric Rac ribbons here and there for interest.

DPs: Magnolia, Maja /design, Websters Pages.
Dies: Magnolia, Spellbinders, Memory Box, Go Kreate.
Punches: Fiskars, Stampin'Up.

The following embellishments are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
Cream, blue, and white tiny Ric Rac ribbon, blueberry blue Divine Baker's twine. 

Thanks so much for visiting, have a lovely week!

Before you go, you can visit The Ribbon Girl and ABC Challenge
for more inspirations from the designer teams.
We would love it if you can join in the challenges.


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

I've been asking the same question myself - where did August go?! Time is just flying by when you are having a nice time, doesn't it?

I absolutely love this card you made for your son and I am sure he will love it too! You colored the image beautifully! I am trying to learn how to colour with distress inks, but I still need lots and lots of practice. I hope that once I will be as good as you - then I will be one happy bunny. lol

Hugs! xx
