And now, here is my creation with Marina's adorable creation, MARVIN!!!

I decided on some white textured cardstock to offset the purples I layered Marvin with, the DP is Basic Grey and the dotted green paper is BoBunny. The other items are from my stash, and I have done something unusual here tonight, LOOK at that stitching, it's not a straight line, mercy me, I can be taught!!! I used the sketch from Everybody Art and will also pop this in at Totally Papercrafts as this week, it's all about keeping it simple and I feel I did that!!

We're going to have 3 days of releases to share with you,
