Flower Mini Album

 I was commenting on a project on Nigezza blog yesterday and  was completely inspired by her beautiful project so went and made one-(thank you for the inspiration)---not as nice think my papers were a bit dark and because my computer is downstairs and craft room upstairs I watched it a couple of times and just wrote down instructions instead of taking a pic so forgot to add the ribbon!

Luckily I hadn't added the topper so added ribbon underneath.

I didn't have any suitable dies for inside so used  my stamps from  Pink Frog and Chocolate Baroque.Stamps coloured with promarkers and the flower on the front was stamped onto cardstock,then a book page and finally P.paper and I put a 3D foam pad in the middle for a little depth.I used my favourite texture stamp around edges and a stencil from Creative Expressions with a grey oxide ink.No idea were the border die was from had it for years and found it at the back of a drawer.
