Edwin all tangled up...

Evening all!
Hope you're all well. I've had a busy day at work today so tonight I thought I'd finish this card I've been doing.......as soon as I saw this idea on Suzanne's blog I knew Edwin looked FAB & i wanted to have a go!
I useed red & black card stock from the paper mill, spotty paper My Minds Eye, ribbon from my stash the "WOW" heart charm I made myself - yes I made it!!! It was a stamp I got from Home Bargains for 39p! Bargain or what. I stamped it with Stazon on Shrink Plastic & shrunk it down! Threaded on black ribbon & tada! greeting printed from pc, Martha Stewart heart doily edge punch & papermania jewels, Edwin is colored in Pro Markers. I tried Edwin the other way round with red pants & a grey top - but he looked weird - why am I wearing rd pants he screamed, so I changed the colors around & he looks WAY better!
I hope you've liked looking at my take on Suzanne's card & I hope she doesn't think I've ruined her idea......I'm off to watch Road Wars, I love all these Cops type shows! See you all laters!! x x
