Roses on Paper DT Challenge - Boy Card

It's Monday and time for a new challenge over at our Roses on Paper Design Team Blog! This time, the sweet and extremely talented Peta challenged us to create a boy card - no stickles, glitter or frill. Do you know how much of a challenge that was for me? While it was difficult for me, it was so refreshing!

Edwin, Is This Your Egg was from the Easter Collection from Magnolia. You can pick up your Magnolia stamps from Summer at Roses on Paper. She's got such great stamps and wonderful service! I followed the sketch from SCS and used several cuttlebug folders to give some texture to the different layers. I colored Edwin with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I used some scrapper's floss on the buttons and stamped hope on a wooden button. The inside says "you have a eggstra special day!"

This Edwin reminds me of the few times I spent on the farm where my mother grew up. I used to watch my cousins go out and collect eggs. I never had enough guts to actually try and take eggs from a chicken. I was always too afraid to get my hand pecked!

Make sure you stop over at our blog and take our challenge. My design team sisters are so talented and I'd love to have you see their gorgeous creations! And there's a great prize for some lucky stamper that I'd hate for you to miss!
