Anyone For Tennis ?!!


For today's card I used one of the stamps from the Magnolia Summer Club Kit., 

 I love this image of Edwin playing tennis.  Do you think he'd win at Wimbledon? 

Of course, I coloured the image using my Copic Markers.  Here's a close-up. 

I cut the image using a Large Nestie Rectangle and left some of the image overhanging the die cut.  You can see a video tutorial showing how I achieve this HERE.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges: 

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
Dream Valley - Ribbons

A super card Penni - I guess that must be Nadal and not our own Andy.

Super cute Penni! Your coloring is delightful, love that Edwin is wearing his Tennis Whites! The embellies are so appropriate for a not girly card and I love the green!
