Miami Edwin

Hi Everyone,

I'm playing along with team B this week, as due to unforseen circumstances we're a girl down, big hugs to you hun.
This week at Tilda's Town we want to see Edwin on your cards.

My Uncle was 60 on 7th June, and I made this card for him. He is from England, but emigrated to New Jersey a long time ago. He got married in Miami in 2010 and they pop down there a couple of times a year, they're actually wanting to retire there, so Edwin in Miami was the perfect choice for him.

The papers are from my cherished Maja design pad, I've distressed the edges with Walnut Stain and decorated the inside to match. The button twine is from The Ribbon Girl and I picked the shell charm up off eBay. The bunting is a doohickey die and the die cut letters are from a Cheery Lynn die. The sentiment is from LOTV.

I've coloured Edwin in with Distress markers, and used chalks for the background. I'm also entering this into the 'Welcome Summer' at Deep Ocean Challenge, and 'Anything Goes' at Wild Orchid Challenge.

Pop over to Tilda's Town and have a look at the stunning cards my team mates have come up with for your inspiration, the prize up for grabs is $15 voucher to spend at Tilda's Town and there's no P&P no matter the size of your order.
