Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Charms and Bling

Woohoo!! It is time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week our theme is Charms and Bling!! Ugh, a man's card from me I'm afraid - don't you just hate that you can't add ribbons and lace and flowers LOL?? I needed to make a card for my Dad this week so it just had to be done! I've used all sorts of scraps from my stash as my papers.
I have coloured Edwin with copics in the colours of the football team my Dad supports to make it more personal.

The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and I stamped the Dad in the centre with some Hampton Arts alphabet stamps. The XO border is from Whiff of Joy and the ribbon is from my stash. The charm is from football shirt charm is from The Hobby House.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges! Pop over to the blog to see the gorgeous creations from my teamies!! Thanks for looking! x

Hi Jane

I think this is a great "male" card. I love how you have made it personal by colouring the football shirt in your Dad's team colours.
