Dangling Sea Edwin for IAR challenge

Last week I won a few auctions on ebay and one of the stamps I got was this cute Edwin called - Dangling Sea Edwin. Even before I won I knew what I'm going to do with him - a sea themed explosion box for little boy. A few months back I bought this beautiful paper from Maja design and I was saving it for some good project and here it is.

I made this explosion box for I am roses challenge blog. We have such a great theme this month. You have to use one of the designer's colour combination. Again let me tell you that IAR gives one of the best prizes - a full box of lovely paper flowers!!! Don't miss this challenge and join us! ;)

  • White Mulberry Paper Flowers - R3 - 15
  • White Mulberry Paper Flowers - R6 - 15 
  • White Roses - R 77 - 15 
  • Christmas Mixed Lily Paper Flowers - LY1- 79
