Tilda's Town Challenge #53 - Use a Magnolia Background stamp

As soon as I saw the challenge for this week, I knew just which background stamp I would use.  I had colored this image several months ago, but didn't have a card in mind for it.  The Tilda's Town Challenge was just perfect!

I used the Waterfall Background and Hiking Edwin.

I have no idea what Copics I used to color the background.  I added white gel pen to the clouds and mountain peaks.  Edwin was also colored with Copics, cut out, and mounted on dimensionals and placed so his feet were on the soil path and the first hill.

I tore the edges of the image to rough it up a bit.
The cardstock is Stampin' Up Soft Suede.  The ribbon is from my stash.

The inside of the card is very simple.  I found the sentiment on line and printed it out on the computer.  I tore the edges of it since the lines were a bit long to nicely fit one of my dies.

That's it for this time.  Enjoy the warmer weather we're having!  I won't complain about the heat - I've waited all winter for this !!

Just love it Kathy! Your card reminds me on our trips to Switzerland many, many years ago and we were hiking and swimming in the ice cold lakes in the mountains.
Thank you for sharing with us @ Tilda's Town challenge this week!
