For a boy at DOC

Hi there all of you amazing crafters! 
Im so exited about tonights posting! We have an awesome new fortnightly challenge for you over at Deep Ocean. This one is all about the men / boys and I have been dying to show you what I created. 

I have had this cutie Edwin amongst my Maggiestamps for a very long time now without ever having him out for a play...Thats just to bad of me..So here he is! 
I decided I would place him in a scene because he would look very lonely otherwise. (Plus I find it challenging to make boys card but don't tell anyone ;) lol He would take  up more space on my card that way. He, he, he! ;)) 
I ADORE that lovely spring background that was released a couple of years ago. Its all colored with my di´s on The Langton extra smooth paper 300 g. 
The patterned paper is just the perfect match don't you think? 
I really tried keeping my embellies down but man..thats also a real challenge for me. I could just go on and on adding stuff...;) lol! I added some cheese cloth, a crinkled ribbon. The corner adornments on the image is made with a die from quick cuts. (Is that right? I never use stuff from them?? Hope you know what I mean ;)) The other one in the upper left corner is a chip board from the Make it crafty store. 
The cute little stars are from Tim Holtz and I painted them with di crackle paint and added some stickles star dust too. 

Before you head off, please do not forget to run over to the DOC blog to look at the gorge creations made by my teamies. 

Thank you so much for checking in with me! 
Lots of love
