Sending you Sunshine

I hope you all like my first card i made for the MagnoliaChallangeBlog it is funny.. now i feel really sort of pressure when designing a card. I think it might take a while before i will get back to my easing-getting-it-all-together :-)
now... i tought it is fun to use flowers on a boy card. So Edwin with ballon came again to the rescue! I did not want to go too girly, so i used the Prima flowers sparingly and only to sort of make a sun. i picked the more muted tones from serenic route Designer Paper by coloring his clothes brown and orange.

Ich hoffe euch gefaellt meine erste Karte dich ich fuer den MagnoliaChallange Blog entworfen habe. Irgendwie komisch... jetzt ging mir die Arbeit nicht so leicht wie sonst von der Hand. Ist schon ein anderer Druck da, was tolles zu zeigen. Ich dachte es ist irgendwie nett, Blumen mit einem Jungen-Motiv zu kombinieren. So "Edwin mit Ballon" kam wie gerufen. Somit konnte ich mit Prima-Blumen sparsam umgehen und hatte nur die Blumen-Challange abgedeckt im Papier, in gestempelten Blumen und als 3-Dimensionales Embellishment.
my supplies for this card used:
Stampset: Edwin with ballon, Stampin up: Loads of love, AMuse: Sentiment (Sending you sunshine)
Embellishments: Prima Flowers , Making Memories Rhinestone Brad, Stampin up wide Grossgrain Ribbon, Making Memories Antique Brads
Tool: Ticket Corner Punch Stampin up
Paper/CS: Pumpkin Pie, Marigold Morning, White and Serenic Route DP
