Thank you very much, Linda for the print challenge. I discovered alter book round robins many years ago and have since played with others, passing around a book that has a certain theme of which you interpret with your style. It is great fun and in the end you have a treasure of others talent and time as well as your own!
The LaBlanche image was inked directly to print from the 7 Gypsies 'Conservatory' paper. I cut into the mushrooms to insert my 'book'. It was created by cutting the sentiment into pieces and laying them onto the pages of the Stampington medium storybook. I used Glossy Accents to cover the sentiment. The pages is edged with the copper scrap. I added a bookmark of ribbon with the 'thought' charm.
My card will go in the mail today...an encouragement card for a dear friend who has taken huge steps toward her dreams. I am so very proud of all she has overcome to realize the life she's meant to live! I never tire of fanning others dreams, for I know how very important they are to a life well lived!
Hope you'll have a tremendous Thursday! And always thank you for your comments...they never fail to touch my heart and encourage my art.

How truly blessed your friend is to have someone as you to encourage and build her confidence to pursue who dream. All anyone needs is for just one person to believe in them and they can take on the world! Your card is just gorgeous. Adore that book piece and the message it conveys!

Cool stamp on the print and I love the little book you made, not just the sentiment but the book itself is so pretty like an ornate frame!
