Just Magnolia #17










There was a lovely sketch over at Just Magnolia
by Martine and it was just perfect for my card. You have the option of making a tag or not following the sketch. I used the tag option as this is for a retiring headmaster from some nuns who teach in his school. They had given me a lot of information about Maurice and I had to find a way of incorporating it into the card. You can see this inside the tag. I stamped Edwin so as it looks like he is sitting on the front of the card but is actually sitting on the books on the tag. Papers from Paper Pizzazz, letters cut on cricut, Edwin coloured with promarkers.
Thanks for looking.
