Edwin needs a shave!


Now don't laugh but the man I made this card for is so like Edwin its uncanny but he did have a mustache so I had to give Edwin one too:) its so weird though its kinda freaking me out!! This man and his wife gave up their lives here in NI to work with orphans in South Africa where they have raised  money and built a school for the kids. Its his 50th birthday in July and I was asked to make a few cards for him.
I put a background map of South Africa in the nestie circle and inside I have a picture of the beginnings of the school. The card has been delivered and the lady was well pleased with it.
Image - Edwin and Inkadinkado leaf frame stamp
Papers - not sure plus black paper from my stash
Embellishments - card candi, ms star punch
Medium - coloured with promarkers

That is a wonderful idea to use the map in the background and his mustache is fine, luckily he didn't have a goatee!
