Party Edwin!!!

Hello peeps!!!!!
just a quicky for tonight as I am pooped out after a lovely day with 2 of my favourite men!!! ( nope not ty from xtreme makeover and simon baker.....dh and ds!!!)
This is my card for the male card challenge over on the cricut mb uk crafters thread.The challenge was a male card with a button on!!! (to get to this card I had 3 other attempts that lined my bin beautifully!!!!)
I finally decided to give myself a days break from it and went to play at my very lovely new friend fiona's house on thursday night and she let me stamp some of her magnolia stamps, i took a shine to this party edwin one nd stamped myself a couple in between snuggling fiona's new puppy spencer!!!
I took them home and placed them on my table but it was too late for me to play with him when i got home from fiona's and the rest of my week has been so busy!!
Finally last night I had a good chance to play and painted him up a bit. I popped some stickles on the tiny stars and inked the edges up. I used a bit of my big one stack to pop on the card base it says happy birthday and best wishes all over it. I stuck that down to my scalloped card base and inked the edges of that too.
Then i popped my ribbon on and threaded some through the holes in my little blue button ( lol!!! that was tricky!!!!!) and woo-hoo my card was done!!!!
I am loving my stamping attempts at the moment! I keep practising my colouring and I am really gettng into the swing of it!!
Don't forget to sneak a peek at my sisters blog, she has more image download on there now and more to come over the bank holiday!!!
