Forest Elf Notebook

Good Day All,

One Stitch At A Time is back from Vacation. Yeahhh!!!  There have been a few changes to our Challenges so please read the click here- Challenge Rules.
We are starting out with Challenge 219 "Anything Goes with a Die".  For my first project I made a notebook using a beautiful image designed by Alipeeps named Forest Elf (click on the name if you want to see it at the store).
I have to be honest I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this image, but after I colored her and started playing with paper and embellishments I thought I need a small notebook to keep my DT stuff organized. So I just kind of winged the notebook design, covered it with paper and it turned out just as I wanted. :D I hope you like it. It was pretty easy to make, if any of you would like a tutorial on how I made this, I can put one together.

Here is my notebook:   This is the front of the Notebook

**Close up of what my colored image looks like, used Renae Bouques Butterflies, 
Spellbinder Dies - Floral Flourishes

Closer Look. One the little gold neck tie on her outfit, I fussy cut this and used a gold metallic pen. 
 I used Wink of Stella Pen to add shimmer to her hair. (not sure if you can see it)

I fussy cut the leaves with the white flowers and the palm leaf and butterfly. The dragonfly is from Teresa Collins Fabrications; sentiment is from my stash -word is printed on vellum

Paper: DCWV - Floral Foliage; Sentiment - Believe on vellum (from stash)
Ink: Gold Metallic pen; Wink of Stella- Clear; White Pigment Ink - uniball signo brand (eyes); 
Copics - YG63, YG 67, G14, Y08, R27, R83, BG10, B02, B45, B24, E000, E00, E21, E51
Accessories: Teresa Collins Fabrications - Dragonfly; Renae Bouquets - Butterflies(brown);Spellbinders Die - Floral Flourishes (colored with gold metallic pen); two ring binders.

I hope you all can join in the fun for our First Challenge returning with "Anything Goes with Dies."
