Fathers day

Today we are celebrating our fathers here in Sweden and I made this card for my dad. 
I think this is my favorite Edwin ever, he is so cute and at the same time very determined. Don´t you think? I can´t help thinking he looks like my father when he is waiting for me and my mum whilst we are doing one of our ordinary shopping streaks. Oh, but come on! ;) 

Luckily this card fits right into this weeks challenge at TOMIC (The Offical Magnolia Inspiration Challenge). They would like us to create a card featuring Edwin and use a marvelloues sketch by dt member Tina. I love it, here´s what it looks like:

Thank you ladies, I had heaps of fun with it, it´s a keeper :) 

My dad is also very into cars so it feelt like a great idea to mask Edwin with the glorious looking Magnolia car. The images are both coloured with di´s on 300 g watercolour paper. The sentiment is one of the cutest I have and I find it so useful time and time again. It´s part of a set from Lily of the valley. I have sewn and distressed all edges with Vintage photo. All the flowers are from WOC and the papers are from Kaiser Kraft. The paper pad is called Vintage Timeless. Lace is from the Magnolia store in Borås. Alphabeth stickers from Making Memories. 

Thank you so much for looking!
Now I´m off to make loads of visits to you my stunning bloggie friends!
