The Sketchy Challenges DT - Corry's Sketch

Woohoo!!  It is time for another challenge at The Sketchy Challenges and this fortnight Corry has created our sketch - and it's a gorgeous one!!  Today is my Father in Law's birthday and this is the card I made for us to give to him - hubby choose the image - he likes to send funny cards!!  It is the first time I've used Super Edwin!  The papers are a mix from my stash and I'm afraid none had names left on them.  I've distressed the edges of them.
I have coloured Edwin with copics and changed his "E" to an "R" with an alphabet sticker, my copics and some gold stickles.  This image really makes me giggle!  Especially as he is coloured with my Father in Law's hair colour!
One of my christmas presents was the cloud doohickey and I'm just loving it sooooo much! It is on a lot of my new cards at the moment!  I have hand written "to a super Dad" and added some button twine from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
On the other cloud I have stamped a Happy Birthday stamp from Magnolia.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at The Sketchy Challenges!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's amazing cards!  Thanks for looking and enjoy your weekend! x
