Edwin Goes Mushroom Picking

First of all, I must tell you about the Magnolia Blog Candy Give Away by Claudia at her blog Pretty Pressings. You really must take a look at her site. You will be amazed. I mean simply amazed. She is one very talented lady. All her cards are simply gorgeous. I learned so much from visiting her blog.

Now on to the challenge at Bizzy Becs. The challenge is simply to create a male card. "It can have any Male theme or image stamped on it. It can be any colour. This one is totally up to you.. Must show some METAL somewhere.. " Perfect! As my brother's birthday is coming up in April, this card will go out to him.

This is the first chance I get of using these stamp (actually for most of my stamps, as I've just recently acquired my Magnolia stamps). The stamp is called Edwin picking mushrooms. I also found the perfect Metal piece for this card (at Michaels), a charm of what else...mushroom! So here's my card. Taa daa.....





The idea for this card actually came from Claudia's blog. She calls this type of cards "buckle cards". I like it--it's different. I think I must do another buckle card and this time using a Tilda image.



Stamps: Magnolia #118 Edwin Gathers Mushrooms and #443 Ink Cap Mushrooms
Designer Papers: Chatterbox Olive Poolhouse Paisley, Tile Stripe and Poolhouse Stripe
Charm: Blue Moon Beads Bits & Baubles Metal Charms
