Charming Edwin

Hi everyone, and hope you're all enjoying your week so far!
I have another card to show with you that I have made using Magnolia's Charming Edwin.

I coloured with Distress Markers and DI pads. I added some stardust stickles to the roses and also added some  Liquid pearls around the image.

The gorgeous butterfly is die cut using Elegant Butterflies Die Set  Whimsy Shapeology Die. The tiny butterfly is cut out with the Jenni's Butterfly from Jenni Bowlin's Medium Lever Punch.

I made the roses and rose leaves with the Marianne Design's Chinese Rose die and Magnolia 's Doohickey Rose Leaf die. The list of other items used can be found below.

Hope you like it.
