First attempt at a book card!

Hello everyone, I hope you've all had a good start to the week.  Its pretty miserable here with lots of rain, yuk!  Anyway, I thought I would share with you my first attempt at a book card that I've seen around a few times.  I so wanted to have a go but put it off thinking it would be really fiddly and time consuming, well how wrong was I it is so simple and yes it takes longer than your usual card but boy is it worth it.  I enjoyed doing it so much I've got another couple planned for some birthdays/anniversaries coming up. 

Anyway, first piccie coming up is the front cover and I've used Whiff of Joy guardian angels stamps and coloured with copics and prismas.  Papers are GCD studios 'Ella Blue' and are just devine so desperate to get another pad of these.   I have distressed these all with Tim Holtz walnut stain.  Flowers are obviously from WOC.

An inside view now.  Again Guardian Angels stamps and lots of distressing going on.  Tag and dragonfly are cut with a Magnolia die. 

Finally,  a closer view of the book  part of the card.  The link for the instructions is HERE and although its not in English the pictures are pretty self explanatory.

Last picture I promise!

Right okay I'm off now I'm meant to be doing housework, mmm housework v crafting yep you can guess which is going to win!!!  Catch ya later folks.

Take care
