Magnolia Edwin Distressed Pirate

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with a card using my new Edwin stamp-isn't he so cute?!
For this project I have used Edwin stamped in Memento and coloured in Promarkers and Metallic gel pen for the sword and buckle. My Minds Eye Papers, K&co self adhesive ribbon, Card candy, Distress ink, Cardstock and pirate stamps.
I started by cutting a nestie shape for Edwin, then distressing with Tea dye inks on the edges and then Pirate themed stamps stamped in the same inks.
I distressed the papers with scissors, and tore the cardstock to make a frayed cardstock border, which I added distressed paper border then ribbon. I placed Edwin on the card at an angle and then placed an 'Ahoy! There!' greeting in the bottom corner of the card. Lastly I added Card candy in the top left hand corner.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Celebrate the Occasion: Masculine Birthday
