90th birthday book card

Hello there !

As promised after my first attempt at a book card, I`m back to share the one I`ve made for my Mum in laws 90th birthday.
I had so much fun making this and it really isn`t as difficult as it looks.

I`m entering this one into this weeks In The Pink Challenge # 72 
which has Shabby / Vintage as it`s theme.

Front cover.
Side view.


A closer look at the main panel

I used Pink Petticoat Brocade papers in Pretty Pink that I faded slightly on the PC.
Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts except the roses which are from the Range.
The leaf die is Poppy Stamps Lorelai Leaf.
The Spellbinders Dies are Romantic Rectangles and Floral Oval.
The scallop border on the main panel is Martha Stewart.
The gem stone numbers are from the Range.
All wording is PC generated.

The tutorial for making a book box card is on Beccy`s blog HERE

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
