My first post as DT for Scribble and Scrap! - a Vintage Book card

Hello there! Happy Sunday!

I'm here, bright and early! to let you know that after being chosen two weeks ago to be a GDT for Scribble and Scrap challenge... they invited me to be a  DT member! of course I accepted straight away!
Scribble and Scrap challenge is always ANYTHING GOES. so no excuses to join! 
The lucky winner will win  a £15 voucher to spend on the Scribble and Scrap shop (if the lucky winner used a Scribble and Scrap image, the prize is a £20 voucher!)
Also, the TOP 3 will get £5 voucher! 

so, don't wait a second (after reading my post!), take a look at the beautiful projects my fellow DTs have made and join us in the Scribble and Scrap challenge fun !

So, third card of my blogathon weekend!
For my first project for Scribble and Scrap, I decided to make a card with a twist! A BOOK CARD!
after watching lots of you tube tutorials, a got a bit from here and there and decided to have a go.

Scribble and Scrap has amazing images: vintage images, vintage and steam-punk digis, toppers and die-cutting files... They also have some new digis of lovely characters called "The Puglies". Go and check them out!

For this project I used one of Scribble and Scrap vintage sheets: Vintage Photo sheet 29.

The book card is completely made from scratch, I started with a few pieces of card stock and ended up with this! :)

I used papers from my K&Company paper pad.  I distressed them with Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Tea Dye.
I made the white clay corners myself with a mould.
I punched the butterflies with Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
The flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Hobbycraft.
The string, button, doily, beads, lace and washi tape are from local shops.

The inside....

on one side, I added a little pocket with two tags, for the greetings.  The tags are from Joy Crafts. 
Used the papers from K&Company, washi tape from local shop and a punched butterfly.

I left the book part empty.
I though I could add some chocolates or a little present inside! It could also be decorated, with flowers, butterflies, ribbon...

the border is punched from a Martha Stewart border punch.

I'm entering my book card into the following challenges:

Crafty Hands - Put a tag on it (tags inside the book card)
Try it on Tuesday - In with the New (new technique) 4th entry
