Friday Fun Inspired by Books!

Jimmi is in charge of our Friday Fun challenges this month and this week, she issued a challenge PERFECT for me!
January 14th – 
Book Challenge, make a card or other paper crafted project based upon and/or inspired by the book you are reading or last read (or a favorite).

I have a book in my TBR (to be read) pile that I bought mainly because I fell in love with the cover (I have read this author before so I know that it will be a good book too) so I immediately grabbed it and started going through my stamps to see what would work along the lines of that hand-drawn frame around the title.

I have just gotten in this new kit from Unity Stamp Co. Iron Orchid Designs, Loolah collection, and hadn't even gotten it inky yet. I thought that it would work perfect to add that hand-drawn fun aspect that the cover of the book has....

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co IOD- Loolah Collection
*Urban Lily paper (red)
*K&Co paper (turquoise)
*Cuttlebug embossing folder-swiss dot
*watercolor pencils
*StazOn jet black ink pad
*Fiskars border punch
*stampin up take note die

Be sure to check out what the rest of the girls have created for this challenge...

Love that idea and inspired such a pretty card.
I see book covers all the time that I think would make great inspiration for scrapbooking.
I need to try it!
