Mini Post

Just a quickie as I'm in a rush, so I'm just gonna post the picture of the card and I'll post the details of what I used later :)

Anyways I am entering this card in the Cards for Men Challenge #4, where the theme was to use mostly green.

Okay, I am editing this part in as I was in a rush earlier as I was getting ready to watch the LIVE episode of EasEnders. How awesome was it!?!?!?

For this card I used a sheet of A4 stock card cut down to size as the base card. The backing card was embossed with the swiss dots cuttlebug folder, which I then chalked in various shades of greens.
The wall was coloured in with Cinnamon and the grass with umm Grass {ProMarkers}
Edwin was coloured in in the following colours: Blush, Dusky Pink, Gold, Grass, Cinnamon, Cyan and Black {ProMarkers} Any shading you see was done with the same colours. {Please note that by clicking on the image to enlarge it just makes it all blurred. So I will see if I can edit it somewhat in PSP later to make it a bit clearer by making the large version of the image smaller}.
Finally the sentiment is from a sticker sheet of sentiments by Dandelion and Daisy.

Simple card which will be winging it's way to my brother in March for his birthday :)
