Faux Book Card

Hello and Happy Sunday!

I only have one post today but it's a long one .......

Today's card is a Faux Book Card which turned into quite a project!  It's for my daughter's birthday which is coming up in May.  She's most upset that she can't see what I made .... normally she 'crits' my work too so I had to go solo on this one! 😅

Here are a few close-up's showing the little 'bookmark' and the spine where I stamped her name and birth date:

A few more shots showing the inside of the 'book':

And here is the tag (tucked in the inside pocket):

Supplies List:
Number die (*new)
Rose die
Olive Branches die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Stamps on tag (Gina K Designs)
Various patterned paper, lace, ribbon, pearls & beads, resin frame, metal heart and inks

I'm playing along in the following challenges:
