Edwin does Just Magnolia - Tab's Sketch

Hey check me out! I've completed a card for a challenge within 48 hrs of the challenge being posted! I might even be in the first thirty if I am quick. It has been ages since I managed to enter a Just Magnolia challenge, but I just had to have a go at Tab's fab sketch. Or should that be fab Tab's sketch!! Not much to tell about the card. The DPs are Blue Awning by K & Co, & Edwin was coloured with my DIs. No matter how many photos I took I could not get the dew drops on the swirls & in the top right hand corner to show up very well. I really must improve my photography skills! I also used a glitter pen on the lizard thingy. My husband asked what Edwin was wearing round his neck. Just shows how much attention he really pays when I show him my cards! He's been found out!! One of the problems I have with male cards is finding or making appropriate embellishments. DIY ones are irrelevant to the men in my life. My husband does not know one end of a hammer from the other! Though to be fair he did fix the flush on the toilet last week. But that has to go down as his biggest DIY achievement in 8 years of marriage! Anyway I think male cards should automatically come with an embellishment stamp too. I need a little baby lizard to go with this.
Any ideas?!
Please come back tomorrow as I hope to have some big news to share with you!
Hope you are all having a good weekend.

Wait what???!!! I can't wait till tomorrow I'm leaving again. What is the news? Can you tell I have NO patience?
I do love this card. I have a hard time with boy embellishments also. I think I always use stars or buttons. The swirls look great! Oh and I do so love the K& Co. papers you used. Such pretty boy colors.
I'm still checking my mail until I leave today. Hugs, Dena
