Bookwormabella Card and Raise the Bar Challenge #8 - Celebrate Women's History Month

This week's challenge at Raise the Bar is to use an image of a book. As soon as I saw this challenge, Bookwormabella popped into my head and I love the quote too. Here's another hot pink card. I just love this paper pack and I'm finally getting down to just scraps. Even though this card has nothing related to Alice in Wonderland, I did use the sketch from the Oh, Alice! challenge blog.

Paper: My Minds Eye Abbey's Road
Stamps: Stamping Bella
Rhinestones, Nestabilities, Prima Flowers, PTI Buttons, Ricrac, and Copics


I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Brent is down in Portland today, so I have the house to myself. I hope to clean and make a ton of cards! I'm in desperate need of birthday cards!

  3. I really like how you stamped the image on the circle and cropped it to the edge of your card. Very interesting to look at. The bands of color are pretty and love the sentiment.

  11. Absolutely wonderful card, Sparkle! I love it! That sentiment is SO true! I always think of books as good friends, too, that you can come back to time and again.

    Have a great day cleaning and creating! Lucky you! (well, not so much the cleaning part, but the creating part!)
