Bon Voyage a la France with Edwin

Hi friends and followers! 

Id like to showcase a card I made for my mother to give away today. They are invited to celebrate their best friends 60th birthday this weekend. Since his wife is giving him a romantic getaway to Paris my mother thought it would be fun to give him a Paris themed card. I don't own the Eiffel tower stamp  from Magnolia and therefor I wanted to buy it but theres something wrong with the Magnolia webshop so I wasn't able too...:( Browsed the internet for a store that stocks it here in Sweden (I needed it kind of fast ;)) but it was nowhere to be found! :( Im part of a group of girls that gets togheter about once a month to get our creative juices running so I asked them if someone had it but no..however a friend of mine reminded me I could use dies! So I did! That way I could fit both a suitcase and the Eiffel tower on there! YAY! I´m not totally satisfied with the way it turned out though as I had something completely different in mind ;) But this will have to do! I must admit I always find it much harder to create cards for men...:o It just doesn't bring me that same flow and I never really know which colors to use or what to put on there and the always come out looking..well...not quit like something I would do? Or what do you think?

I followed the gorgeous sketch over at Midweek Magnolias. Its always a pure joy to contribute to their challenges, they are a group of fun loving and very talented ladies. Heres what it looks like:

The lushious sketch is made by Becky, thank you! I had so much fun using it :) 

I decided to once again dust off this gorgeous little Edwin stamp, I bought it so many years ago but its one of my absolute fav Edwins ;) He is so cute and very festive! He's also very versitale and you gotta love that in a stamp right? He is inked with my di´s on Langton watercoloring paper 300 g. 

Thank you so much for checking in with me today! 
It brings the biggest smile to my face :) 
Big hugs, see you in your blogs ;)

  3. Absolutely beautiful Louise and I would say it is definitely your style sweetie but I know what you mean about the flow. Great improvisation with the die and such a cute Edwin too. Love your colouring and all the gorgeous little touches you've added. He will love the card I'm sure and especially as it's themed on the romantic getaway to Paris.
