Edwins Bike - another birthdaycard for a boy

Two blogposts from me in one day! I'm pretty sure it won't happen again in a very long, long time. 
My boyfriends brother phoned to tell he'd bring over supper for us, so all of a sudden I got a little sparetime - I Love when such things happen!

Working on the birthdaycard for my son, I found that I do have quite a few Edwins too, not only Tildas. 
This is one I bought just recently. I think he's just sooo cool on his bike (of course I had to buy Tilda with her bike as well). 
At the same time I bought the bikedie, from MarianneDesign. I think it works so well with this image.
 I'm still practising with my DistressMarkers - a bit tricky, but I won't give up, at least not as long as I have fun practising...

a closer look at Edwin:

Here's the inside:
I used the same sketch, Dutch Magnolia Lovers #36, for the inside as for the front.
I stamped on several birthdaygreetings, and left one panel blank to write a more personal greeting.

Two of the panels are attached with brads, to be turned around to read the greetings underneath:

On the back I put on a little stamp I bought from Alota Rubber Stamps (for the prize I won in their challenge blog a few weeks ago :D )
