This card took some thinking, the new challenge on Everybody Art Challenge is to use a bookpage preferably not the one someone is reading. I use an e reader, some of the tombs I read are too heavy to hold and the mini e reader is much lighter. Anyway I'm going off topic the book page I've used is some patterned paper that is actually made that way, yes I know I'm cheating a bit but it still has writing on.
I used it has my main mat, distressed it and I added distress and torn patterned paper, making sure that some words are showing.
I used a Sarah Kay stamp inside a floral oval which I cut out the centre to make a frame. My biggest mistake of course there is one is the flower I decided I didn't like but had made the hole for the pearl brad so there it had to stay.
I didn't want to use a sentiment because I felt it could work for more than just a Birthday but that meant a large empty space next to the image so I used the Ivy die from Sue Wilson. Oh I forget to mention my lace and ribbon, have now.
Do pop over and check out the team also hope you can join us.
