Edwin’s a Winner at Tennis

What a change in the weather, at the north east coast UK its warm & dry with a balmy
tropical wind.. having trouble sleeping at nite as its TOO warm..lol
My heart goes out to all the folks who have had their homes flooded with the horrendous rain fall.
I wouldnt like to be them cleaning up & throwing out much loved possessions..
Onto a happier note my super cute patriotic Edwin has won his tennis match & has a Medal to prove it..lol
all we want now is for Andy Murray to come thro for GB..mmmm.  I made this card for a few challs which
I’ll list at the bottom.. Edwin is from the Winner takes it all collection, coloured with markers & prismas.
Mat, layered & framed with SB Labels 22 die which I have mutilated but like this shape with the fancy corners.
The papers are Do Crafts Papermania Portobello Rd..pad distressed the edges… for the banner I used
another SB die ..(part of the Pennant)  Magnolia die swirl, can you see the red/white/blue gems??
for the medal I used yet another SB die, comp. generated sentiment & added ribbon..I chalked in some grass..
thats it my patriotic sporty Edwin creation hope you like him..
