Black panels: 2 ¾ x 1 1/8, flower/ladybug: 1 square, mesh: 1 5/8 x 1.
Images are colored with markers and artist brush. An easy way to stay in the lines and shade at the same time on those tiny flowers is to draw a marker line part way around the petal and pull the color down with a small artist brush.
Doodles are done with a gel pen then I ink distress with a sponge. On this cardstock it also pulls the gel ink and gives a neat look I thought. So I tried it on regular cardstock but it dries much faster so you do an inch with gel pen then ink distress and continue until finished.
The rectangle panels are stamped then I used the Traffic Jam Cuttlebug folder and dry embossed them. There is one section where they fit just perfectly; I used blue painters tape to hold it in place while embossing.
The hinges and flower half one half tucked under the panel and glued in place. I glued 1/16 punch circles for faux brads on each hinge hole and ¼ for the flower center and cut it in half.
The flower sets up on a ¼ punched circle for dimension
Diamond Glaze is used to attach the gems, adhesive dots for the ribbon.
Thats the end of my story! Cindy will be along with another soon!

I love it!
------------------------------ KAREN Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:12-13
