Midweek Magnolias DT #84 Flourishes

Good morning my dears, It's time for a new challenge over at

This fortnights challenge has the theme of Flourishes which can be in the form of stamping or die cuts.  I've used my Doo Hickey die to achieve my flourishes and I'm using this adorable Edwin. I don't even know his name or which collection he's from but I just loved his look, so when he came up for sale over on Facebook I had to snap him up. Edwin has been coloured using Derwent soft pencils and sansodor oil. 

My papers are a mixture of Tim Holtz Shabby Chic 12 x 12 and Maja Designs.   The Hello stamp is from Stampin Up and the other sayings are from my various scrapbook collections.

Our sponsor for this challenge is the fabulous
