Art book card

Challenges:
Crafty Ribbons-anything but a card
Paper Sundaes-rectangle
Cupcake Craft-textalicious
The Culture Shock-umbrella




Well this book card was a first for me. I have been wanting to try one for awhile but couldn't find a tutorial that used inches instead of cm, I cannot work cm lol. So I found one, but think I used the wrong kind of paper to make the "pages". I used colorbok cs and it breaks when you score it so doesn't have that kinda puffy look to it that I see on others. I started in one direction with this and just completely changed on me. I know it has a feminine and a masculine feel to it, but that's why I called it an art book card. I just kept adding elements that felt right to me. I love how it came out, though it probably wont appeal to everyone. Anyway hope you like it, or can give me pointers if you don't. XOXO Christi
