Do you believe in superheroes?

I always struggle with cards for the men in my life, but this time, Super Hero Edwin came to the rescue!

Over at Paper Sundaes this week, we have a really fun (for me, at least!) challenge.  Our sponsor this week is Stamp and Create, and to celebrate the fact that Lacey is now carrying Magnolia stamps, we have set our theme as 'Magnolia'!

I've coloured him to match these fun 'Creative Imaginations' papers.  I carefully cut all those layers of paper to match the super hero emblem on the papers, cutting the paper down to fit my card base.

I've kept the inside equally clean and simple.  I thought this sentiment was perfect for Super Edwin!

I hope you'll pull out your Magnolia stamps, and come play along with us this week at Paper Sundaes!

Challenges:
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Happy Birthday
Emerald Faeries - Birthday
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
Tip Top Tuesday - Masculine card
Stamps R Us - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - As You Like It

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs,
     Christine
