Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT - Edwin Only

Woohoo!!  It is time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and this week we would like to see just Edwin on your cards!  Bless him, he doesn't get much of a look in does he with so many cute Tilda images!  I decided to make a get well card using the gorgeous Dr Edwin  #000 stamp available exclusively at Magnolia-Licious!!
                                             
I have coloured Edwin with Prismacolor pencils using the burnishing technique again.  I have inked around the edge of the image mat with walnut stain distress ink.
The Get Well Soon sentiment is from Whiff of Joy and the gorgeous flower is from Magnolia.  I used the doohickey heart swirl die and a Martha Stewart punch on the border.  The checked paper is from Magnolia and the graph paper is by Girls' Paperie.  I drew a temperature chart in red to add to the get well theme.
I have added a chipboard heart cut with a sizzix die and the rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The twine on the little tag is from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  Did I say tag? 
The twine is attached to a little thermometer shaped tag I created that tucks behind the image - you can write a message on the back.  The mercury bulb at the bottom is a half pearl and I have drawn on the rest of the markings.
I 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 rest of the team's stunning cards.  Thanks for looking! x
