To inspire you...

What a week! I haven't been this sick for a long time. It's boring resting on the couch when you are unwell, so I managed to drag myself up to join in the The Shabby Tea Room's challenge for this week. The theme is For The Love of Books' You are asked to create a card or project inspired by the photo USING CREAM, AQUA, PINK and NEWSPRINT!

 I knew I had some die cut shapes left over from a Kaisercraft collection, and lucky for me I still had the stack of books. Once I found it I was able to build my card around it.

I did a lot of machine stitching on this card and inked the edges lightly to give a vintage effect.
My title/sentiment is a rub on. I thought that it summarised what books can mean to many people.
My card looks a bit blue?? when in fact it is a deeper aqua. Anyway, this card helped me take my mind off from being unwell for a short time.


Paper: Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings paper pad and Timeless Collection

Ink: Distress ink walnut stain

Other: Spellbinders nestabilities classic squares small, eyelet squares and classic circles small, kaisercraft Sweet othings die cuts, paper bloom, flourish and rub on, Hooked on Craft flowers, lace, Stampin' Up! seam binding baja breeze, Bow easy.

Thanks for stopping by!
