I've decided to try something I have NEVER tried before.  I honestly don't even know what you would call this little project.  But a card that resembles a book.  That is what I'm sharing with you today.  I thought it would be a perfect way to show off this fun and fabby new digi.  "Me Time" is now available in
Elisabeth Bells Digital Collection. 

I've got several different pictures to share...
So lets get started...
I know you can't see it very well, but I've actually colored several pieces of this image
making it a 3D image, or do we call it "Decoupage"? 
Here is another view...

and....  another view....
Now how about the inside?
I found this fun quote on Pinterest, and just HAD to use it for this card.
and since I'm sharing ALL the pictures, why not end with the back of my card?  LOL

ohhhh, but that's not the end of my post.... 

I've used Copics for coloring this sweetie... (Colors are listed below)  
All flowers, (yes, even the one on the inside of the card) were made using EKSuccess punches, adding in some Martha Stewart punches leaves and branches.  The papers I used here are from my Maja Design "Vintage Frost Basics" paper pad.  I just love these papers. (I received them from my Secret Santa in Norway.  What Fun! =)

Whether I win her or not, I will need to buy this image. I am composing a book of things I remember of my dad and have acquired old old photographs of when he was a child in 1929. He died just as the New Year arrived and was 84 years old. I've been contemplating how to bind or do such a memory book for me so it can be passed down to my children. This image would be awesome for the cover, and your project is what made me realize that. Thank you for the inspiration. I love your book cover very much. Hugs, Gail
