A trio of Challenges

Finally hubby is starting to feel a little better and it's not raining today so the little ones are outside playing.. while I get to play inside :)

I made this card for 3 challenges:

  1. Just Magnolia, week 16 - Distressing (as if 2 weeks of listening to an ill hubby isn't distressing enough, lol!!)
  2. Stampavie & More challenge #54 - School
  3. Friday Sketchers - 63 had this wonderful sketch to follow -

I used Magnolia's Edwin and coloured him using distress inks. I distressed the background using Broken China. Then I cut edwin out using my octagon nesties, and mounted it on a scalloped octagon. I distressed the backgound papers with an edge distresser.

Then I made a little folder using the cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook cart. I used white cardstock and distressed it with Old Paper. I cut out a little piece of my dp to slip into the folder. Then I stamped "A" on the front. (to give the impression that it was a report card!!)
I finished off the card using 3 buttons threaded with scrappers floss and some stickles on Edwin's wings. I decorated the inside using the same papers, but no stamping :)
