Book worm ....

.... Good afternoon!  I've a cute little card to share with you today - made with a couple of challenges in mind:

Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Book Work
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Wisteria Wonder; Washi Tape; Copic Markers; Glossy Accents

I think I'm just about in time for this week's Less is More challenge.  I've been going back and forward all week thinking about what "little creature" to use on the card, then I found this cute little book worm.  I made a small gift card (5" × 3½").  I used Washi Tape to make a book shelf.  I stamped the books and book worm on some scrap card, colouring both with Copic markers.  I fussy cut them both out and adhered the books flat on the card and used dimensional gel for the worm.  I added some Glossy Accents to the worm's glasses.  I finished the front with a fun sentiment - I tend to find that this one is often true!!!  On the inside I cut a mat layer of lilac card and stamped another sentiment.

I had a really fun day yesterday - I went to a friend's wedding.  I was invited to be a witness and after the service we went back for a small lunch and some champagne.  I took a few informal photos at the lunch.

I made card last week using some pears - this is the gift bag that I made to go with the card.  The glasses - for the champagne toast!

Nathan and Lucie - a bit more formal this time!

I've got to get a good head start on my upcoming Design Team cards.  My son, Ben will be coming over for a couple of weeks in November.  I'm so excited and really looking forward to seeing him - it's been nearly a year since we last got together.  He's bringing his girlfriend, Sophie, too.  So, it's going to be a busy few weeks, and that's all for now.

Looks like a fun day Deborah - love that union jack apron your friend is wearing! Your card is adorable..the glossy accents looks fantastic on his glasses. It really makes them stand out - such a sweet image and sentiment. Thanks for playing along at Colour Q!

First I love your fun cards and that book worm with the shiny glasses. Why do glossy accents give me such trouble? The photos of your friends are wonderful - I bet they treasure the second one FOREVER! Its so crisp and clean, they look so elegant and happy - it looks like a celeb photo fit for a magazine!
