Mother's Day Card (Mini book embellishment!)

Happy Wednesday!!!!
 
So heads up! I am running on 2 hours sleep and if things are written backwards or inside out you know why, LOL  I am in the giddy stage.
Michael seems to be getting worse not better, I on the other hand am much better, thank you for all your amazing support and get well wishes!!!
I asked Michael today what year he was born, his reply was:
" 2003 was my first appearance" hahahahahaha  love it!
 
Today I am showing you a Mother's Day Card, I plan on making at least 4 more and join challenges, something I haven't done too much but I am getting better at it! This card I am entering into

Last week a friend of mine "Christina" from Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls made a mini book embellishment for her card and I fell in love with the idea and had to try it out. All I did was cut 5 pieces of the Spellbinders small scalloped square... I folded each in half and then opened to create the crease for the middle of the book...I stamped with my wooden writing block, inked the edges and added a piece of string (frayed at the end) as a bookmark... I also put recollections small pearls down the center.  View the close up view below, I will be making more of these!
 
 
 The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts , I used lace stickles on them to give them a little sparkle
 
 


All lace and bling used  is from Recollections
 
 
Have a fantastic day!!!!
