My First Faux Book

I decided to make a wedding card for someone I know who gets married in a few weeks. I have seen faux books on blogs before and in Craft Stamper but never tried making one. Here is my first attempt.

The image is LOTV and the beautiful papers are Basic Grey Capella. The lighting wasn't very great, I'm afraid the pics could be better. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and added some Stickles to the edges of her dress. The heart stamp is from February Craft Stamper. Here's a look inside

and a wee side view

I hope they like it. I am entering this into the following challenges
Crafty Sentiments - punches/dies
Passion for Promarkers - new beginnings
2 sisters - sketch
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes

thanks for visiting.
