Baby Edwin 1st Birthday

Good evening folks, well so much for me getting back into blogging hey...seems like as soon as I get back into it then life gets in the way........ again....!!!  Anyways I hope you all happy and well.

This card has driven me bonkers, simply because I thought I give those Spectrum Noir pens a try, just to compare the difference between them and Copics, spent ages (as we do) colouring this image, then putting the card together, I was just tidying up my desk area ready to photograph this card, when silly ole me only dropped my brushed corduroy ink pad on the image, hence the big splodge underneath my watermark.....d'ya think I had the patience to make!!!

Magnolia Baby Edwin coloured with Spectrum Noirs
Kraft Cardstock
Papers - GCD Bella Blue - 
Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Pearly gems
Many of these goodies are available from the lovely Tracy over at Dies To Die For

Such an adorable card Vicki, I love the cute image and the colours and detailing are gorgeous. I would not have noticed the 'splodge' if you hadn't mentioned it!!
