All I Want For Christmas Is...Edward!!

Hi everyone! Merry Christmas and Happy Twi-Day! I doubt anyone will play along today, but I wanted to give Edward a little love on Christmas!!!

For my card today, I used Mercy's Sketch #2 from Splending Stamping With The Greeting Farm!

I started by stamping Edward, the Wild Sprout from The Greeting Farm, in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and I colored him with Copic Markers. I cut him out with Oval Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe.

The patterned paper is Good Cheer by October Afternoon and I added a scalloped border of Choice Buttercream on either side using my Scallop Edge Punch.

The "All I Want For Christmas Is" is from Fairy Good Day by There She Goes, and the "Edward" is from Otherworldly Love by Stamp Insanity!

I finished this off with a triple ribbon (Edward deserves three ribbons don't you think?) and some Ruby Red Brads!

One of my all time favorite Edward quotes comes from New Moon:

"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars—points of light and reason… And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything."
- Edward Cullen
Thanks SO much for stopping by and I hope you all have a VERY Merry Christmas! I am sure, by the time this posts, I will be sitting amidst wrapping paper as Meredith plows through all of her presents from Santa!!
