Edwin in Miami

 Hi, Everyone!
For today's card I used a image by Magnolia called Edwin Miami  which is available at 7 Kids College Fund.  I enjoyed coloring him. I love beach themes. Reminds me of when I was away a few years back. 

Kim's Card Recipe

Viva Decor Glitter- Starfish and Shells
Shells/Twine/Cotton Rope/Open Burlap/Cheese Cloth- Stash 
Studio Gesso-  White paint on the shell border
 Spellbinders Impressabilites - Sea Scape Embossing folder - Used on the Bottom of the Kraft paper that I punched. Also used this technique on the Anchor die cut as well. (Here is a tip). To make your embossing "POP". I sprayed Rubbing Alcohol lightly on my card stock first, then run it through my die cut machine with the embossing folder!!! Awesome. Now when you take it out it will be slightly damp don't worry it dies instantly it does not ruin your card stock. Try it.!!! The details from the Embossing folder are AMAZING!
Charms- From Candy.Thanks Girl
