Catch the bug - Anything but a card Monday

Monday February 18, 2013
 
Monday at Catch the bug means ANYTHING BUT A CARD DAY and today I have this little book its 4x6 and already covered with a great paper. So it was just a matter of me embellishing the front. I love my Stella drink coffee digi image and thought her sentiment was perfect for the front. I loved using the different dies and colors. I have not embellished book covers before but think I may have to try this again.

You did a beautiful job even with dear old Stell'a's sour puss face...haha The colors would be challenging to me as well and I'm not even sure I have a piece of coral paper. Great job!
