Midweek Magnolias - Anything but a Card

Hello Friends! I'm back with another project for Midweek Magnolias. Our challenge this week is "Anything but a Card." I love challenges like this because I am a paper engineer at heart. Plus this gives me a chance to use some of those awesome cutting files for my Silhouette Cameo. I found this sweet little baby buggy that is the perfect size for my adorable Edwin.
This project was really simple. I cut and assembled my baby buggy then added the butterflies and pearl buttons.
The butterflies are from Whimsy Stamps called Butterfly Border. The individual butterfly stamp accompanies the border digi. I got the idea from a lovely fellow crafter, Kasey. She made a card with these butterflies and I fell in love with them. Check out her card here. She feathered two colors to blend them for her butterflies and they are awesome. Purple and Yellow are complimentary colors and don't blend so I didn't use that technique.
Up close and personal of my adorable Edwin.
These are the Copics I used to color Edwin.

Supplies:
Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs - Nana's Nursery Boy
Cutting Files – Silhouette Cameo, Rivka Wilkins
Pearls – Viva Decor
Brads - Michaels
Other - Cheesecloth from JoAnn's

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:

Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Color Me Creative - Babies
MDUC - Bingo (Edwin, Cheesecloth, Pearls)

I hope my baby buggy inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias.

Hugz,

I LOVE IT! This is the neatest carriage design. Excellent coloring and the display picture is gorgeous. :)

Billie A said...

OH MY it's awesome I saw your scene on MIM and had to take a closer look. I love it. So much detail and patients cutting. Well worth it so pretty. Your coloring is awesome. I have not tried Magnolia images as they scare me with so much face and how to not make it look strange. You are awesome with details. My cards are 125 & 188 if you care to stop by.
