Happy Birthday to a Special Guy ...

I made this for my baby (he turned 20 last month) he doesn't mind a cute card, bless him!
Purchased Edwin from the last release of Magnolia stamps and he was my 
favourite of the entire collection. I have seen a few sneak peaks of the next Magnolia collection
and I really NEED some.
Anyways, I decided to cut away the front of this card to create the clouds which
I have done this freehand.  The inside back of the card is the sky complete with
a sun which I cut out with my Slice.  Distressing the clouds with TH inks really adds depth.
Coloured with Promarkers, completely hand stitched once again, 
sound like a  record, sorry.
Some Kraft card from my stash, fence die & bunting die.
Garden twine from my shed :)
Grass hand cut, really must invest in a die, me thinks.
The sentiment is from a set from Tickled Pink stamps which is not 
I believe available anymore?
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -
Here come the Boys - Tiddly Peeps (I won Top 3)!!!
That is all from me today, have a great day, crafting or not
take care, Jane x
