Megs Garden - "Summer Rose Garden, Book Card"


I loved creating this... “Summer Rose Garden, Book Card” for Megs Garden, as part of the November, ‘summer challenge’.  For some time now I have wanted to make something from an old book, but just cannot fathom the idea of cutting into one of my old books.  Any book to me is a treasure!  So, I created one instead.  It’s only a basic book card, with a few ‘pages’ so to speak, but it is a book nonetheless.
Of course the beautiful products from Megs Garden’swebsite just brought the whole creation together beautifully.  The products I used are listed below...
I will not explain how I created this card book, as I am in the middle of writing up a tutorial for Megs Garden.  As soon as it has been completed, I will let everyone know via my blog.

You’re really all absolutely sweet and thoughtful of others plus reading your blog posts is a superb delight if you ask me. And what a generous gift! Ben and I are going to have fun making use of your points in what we should instead do next week. Our list is a mile long and tips might be put to good use.
