Hi there, can't believe it's Tuesday already, and another challenge up and running. Today features the new DT's from Team B, I hope you'll visit their blogs and leave them some love. You can check out the challenge, and entries on Michelle's Blog. Don't forget you could win a $10.00 shopping spree at Michelle's Etsy Store. There are so many wonderful digital images to chose from, and trust me that will be the hardest part!! For my card today I used the newly released "Boy and Dog Bookplate".
So what embodies back to school more than books. I decided to try and make my card look like a book. I rolled a piece of card stock, and glued it to the fold on both the front and back, to make it look like the binding of a book. Then I used the Martha Stewart checkerboard border punch, and glued that on top, gives it a spinal look. I wanted the name of a popular book for boys ages 7-9, so I spent some time googling, and found this one "The Mystery Of The Pirate Ghost" and used it to name my book. I thought the ribbon was a great embellishment, because I've lost myself many times to the mysteries of a good book, and I considered that a cherished memory.
Well, I hope you will join us again this week, and I look forward seeing all the amazing entries. Good luck ladies!
