Just Magnolia / PaperPlay Challenges

This card covers 3 challenges.
  1. Just Magnolia, which calls for Buttons
  2. PaperPlay Challenges - Favourite Chocolate/Candy
  3. Magnolia-licious - who are having an Edwin themed blog hop
This is my favourite chocolate :)

I used the Edwin with Surf board image, from the Magnolia Summer kit. I coloured him with both pencils and distress inks. I shaded the background using Broken China. For the 'sand' I used Distress Stickles in Antique Linen.

Feels like sand too!!

I added loads of buttons to the outside and finished the card off with a sentiment from Studio G. I also matched the papers on the inside and added a journalling spot.

This is what happened the chocolate approx 10 seconds after I'd taken the picture of it....
She'd had her face painted for last day of summer camp, lol.

Ingredients: (all linked items available on Pez-A-Doodle)
Papers: BG Archaic
Image: Edwin - Magnolia Summer Kit
Distress inks, distress stickles
Sentiment: Studio G
