GDT at papertake weekly!!!

Please scroll down for my creative card crew post...
Yep I'm back and how exciting is this?!! I am so lucky enough to be a GDT over at the fabulous papertake weekly for the month of December!!! This weeks challenge is one of those super easy anything goes too which pretty much gives me free reign on anything (not always a good idea lol!) the option is for something dangly (I didn't dangle lol!) and we are sponsored by the wonderful LOTV. This gave me a great excuse to ink up one of my new LOTV stamps (I bought 3 amazing new stamps and haven't inked any of them up yet!!!)
Warning though this post is photo heavy!!!! I made a book card something I have wanted to try but never got round to before so here it is...

I used beautiful papers from Tim Holtz shabby chic pad along with lace and flowers from Wild orchids, there are some prima flowers, some stamens from a local craft shop and a handmade pebble in there too! My beautiful butterflies are from little snippets and my cheesecloth is from stash, my tags have been cut with nesties and my pearls are Kort & godt.

I have coloured my pretty image with prisma pencils and machine stitched the edge. My sentiment is also LOTV from the same stamp set and her wings and snowflakes have been stickled and glamour dusted.

This is the back of my book, again nesties tags and also nesties for my creator stamp. All layers have been inked with vintage photo and machine stitched. My ribbon is wired blue chiffon ribbon from hobbycraft.

Here you can see the book part of concertinaed card and how it ties together.

And here is the inside, the let hand tag has been cut with nellie snellen and stamped with a 7 gypsies stamp. My pearls are again Kort & godt and my butterfly is e crafts. On the right I have used lace from the local market and a xmas magnolia stamp.
These are such a beautiful way to give a little gift within a card!
I would like to enter this into Flutterby weds recipe challenge, Truly scrumptious xmas with pearls/vintage, Fab and funky anything goes, Cooking it up with Katie anything goes, Papercrafting journey anything goes, DYSU ribbon, Fairytale challenge xmas, Raise the bar xmas, Fairy fun friday winter blues and Card makin mamas use a sentiment.
Thanks to Dawn and the team for having me over on their fabby blog for this month and thanks to all my blogging pals for popping by my blog!
Big hugs to you all
