I have had this book for just over a week and had always planned to decorate it and keep drawings of card sketches in it. When I saw that High Hopes had 'think outside the card' as their challenge this week I knew it was time to get on with it, even though it was 10pm last night! (I eventually got to bed just after midnight- bad move!) I decided to use the BasicGrey sketch for this cover as I was having trouble parting with this paper and now I won't have to because this is for me! The paper is from a 12 by 12 piece of Eva paper and some of the plainer papers and the letters are theirs also. I made the felt flowers and the leaf swirl with my Sizzix. The ribbons were in my stash and I was glad I had so much because I was surprised how much it took!
Cupcake Craft have a rather tricky embellishment challenge- use 5 embellishments but flowers only count as 1 however many you use and the same goes for ribbons, brads etc. Here goes, I think I have got this,- flowers, ribbon, brads, leaves and letters?!
