Edwin's flying

Hey everyone. Edwin is ready to play in this image. I love the colours that works so well with the entire card. For the background mat I sewed (check out this great stitch pattern of flowers) this red/white strip paper to the bandana red paper. I then wrapped a ribbon around the mat and then adhered it to the card base. I used some new spellbinders dies I just got to layer Edwin up after colouring and cutting him out. I used stickles a bit to give his plane some sparkle. Finally I added the sentiment, bling, a brad, and some flowers. I used some shimmer spray on the blue flower just to get some sparkly going on!
