Just Add Ink #88 - Add A Die Cut

This week at Just Add Ink, we have a bit of a different challenge; "Just Add....A Die Cut"!
I chose the trusty old Top Note...and I kinda turned it into a mini-book, covering the front and back of each page with DSP.
Each "page" has a cardboard middle, making them stiffer and stronger.
The sentiment I chose to put on the first page says:
"Let us be grateful...
to people who make us happy
for they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom."
The last page I've left blank, ready for a personal message to the recipient.
I have inked the edges with my little friends, my sponge daubers and I punched 3 holes in each page and laced up with crochet lace.
The crocheted flower was made my the beautiful Patrice who was so generous and whipped up a few and posted them to me! I've rationed them and saved them, not wanting them to run out! This flower was actually white, but I dipped it in some water and re-inker and left it to dry. I actually used 'Close To Cocoa" ink, but the flower turned out an orange-y colour, but I liked it and it matched the DSP perfectly!
And I loved inking my latest addition - "My Friend" Stampin' Up set - LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

Thanks for coming to have a look, and I look forward to seeing what you're going to make if you enter this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink!
