I'm here today with a creation to combine four challenges and also to try my hand at something new (for me at any rate). The B's are for The Craft Barn Two Weekly challenge with the theme of 'books', Creative Inspirations challenge where it's 'buttons, blooms and bows' and over at Mrs A's Butterfly challenge it's another B for the butterfly along with 'C for checkered and/or cyan' (I managed both after a rummage through my old stash). UnstampaBelles challenge is to go 'ouside your comfort zone and twist: a different edge'..... definitely outside my comfort zone and even though I did make a couple of booboo's with the cutting and measuring I'm pleased to say that I managed to fudge it together okay in the end, and hopefully the faux pages should count as a 'different edge'
I'm still on a mission to use up old stash and found some quite heavy checkered card for the book and some old papers for inside. I distressed all the edges with Memento ink and before sticking it all I added some ribbon on the inside so that I could fasten it shut with a bow. I added strips of Basic Grey ribbon doiley down the side and the spine, a Memory Box 'fresh foliage' die, some flowers with buttons in the centres (these were the only two buttons I could find) and finally a metal butterfly (which was in the fabulous bag of goodies Mrs A sent me) with some little pearls for the body.
That's it from me for today but I'll be back tomorrow with my snippet make for a trip over to Pixie's Playground so I'll see you then. Thanks for popping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
