Edwin, for a change!!

I thought it was about time I did an Edwin card, again he is from the latest Magnolia set and he is so cute too, I'm a little puzzled by apples in his basket but hey what ever  floats his boat!!! lol,
This card is for our latest challenge over at 
and it's to use black in your card project,
check out the gorgeous creations the girls have made,
as you can see I've been tearing my paper edges again, think I like this, so you may be seeing a few more in the near future lol,
papers are a mixture of Magnolia and Tim Holtz,
I have distressed the edges of my torn paper and the snowflakes with Vintage photo distress ink,
the snowflakes centres are again Prima flower centres that I got from Simon Says Stamp,
My snowflakes are liquid pearl, but I haven't flattened these, still think they look more like snow when flattened though lol,
image is again coloured with copics,
the sentiment is another latest stamp from Magnolia,

I haven't had time to check for challenges yet, so will do so later, had a busy week this week!

WOW Liz this is gorgeous! I hardly ever use Edwin, in fact I don't own very many at all. He tends to get left out and just look at him here, absolutely gorgeous! Love what you have done with those snowflakes! Judy x
