Simon Says Stamps challenge DT - Prince Charming

Seems like ages since I posted! I've been super busy over the weekend. I went to the NEC on Friday and had a fabulous time bargain hunting with Mina, it was so lovely to finally meet up and I was gutted I couldnt' make it back for the Saturday too!! I also bumped into Jacqui, Marlene and Paola from South Africa which was a true surprise and I also met Julie and Lesley for the first time too! I actually didn't buy an awful lot (much to my hubby's relief LOL) as most of my shopping list was for the non existent Magnolia stand, although I did buy a rather interesting ribbon shredder with the thought of making some flowers with it so watch this space LOL! Anyway, it is time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamps challenge and this week our theme is Prince Charming - we'd like you to make a boy/man's card and use charms. As always you have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate for the Simon Says Stamp store courtesy of Heidi!

I just had to use this gorgeous new Edwin from the Magnolia Christmas collection. Isn't he adorable clutching his present!? I've used the gorgeous sketch at Friday sketchers for my card and some Webster's pages for my papers.

I've coloured Edwin with copics and then added stickles to the gift wrap. The little sentiment is by LOTV - one of my NEC purchases!

One of the papers had this gorgeous little gingerbread house on it and I just couldn't cover it up so decided to use it as an image for Edwin to sit by.

I have used snowflakes punched with MS snowflake punch and a Whiff of Joy die, some red gems and a Christmas tree charm from my stash.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Simon Says Stamp. Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the teams "charming" cards! Thanks for looking! x

Wow, Jane your card is so wonderful. I love how you used the Gingerbread house on the Webster's papers as the background for Edwin. Your coloring is fantastic. I always enjoy seeing your artistic talent. Have a wonderful day!
