Dream Big

This card was originally supposed to be for the Just Magnolia Challenge. We were to use pleats. I just did not get this finished in time. I have pleated paper by K & Co and then cut and stitched it around the edge of my card. All solid cardstock is by Bazzill. I colored Edwin with his guitar with my Copics and then layered him in ovals cut with my Nesties. I then added buttons on all four corners with a bit of twine tied into little bows. That was pretty much all I did. Not sure why I did not get it done in time for the challenge. Oh well.

Here is a list of the Copics I used:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, and R20 for cheeks.
Pants: B13, B18, B21, B39
Shirt: G21, G85, G94
Hair, Guitar, Boots and Bench: E49, E57, E74, E79, E99
