I saw the cutest image from Sherri Baldy Img697 that I just HAD to have. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it, so I gathered my supplies and set to work.
Knowing I wanted to emulate a book with the front of my card, I found this great YouTube tutorial from Christina Griffiths-Faux Book Card. I also knew I wanted to make a corner bookmark and followed this tutorial from Jenny at Stamping Moments.
I also love to 3d images on my card fronts and have followed the wonderful tutorial from
Adding my Tim Holtz weathered clock die cut, weathering it a bit with Tim's Distress Ink-black soot. The project required some fun stash diving for paper, buttons, ribbons, brads and a clock charm; all of which helped me pull it all together. I wrote a little "book sentiment" as the insert for my intended bestie recipient, which I think she'll get a kick out of.
Of course I colored the images with my beloved copics and added some Ranger liquid pearls and a few dabs of Zig's Wink of Stella.
