This is another non-stitch book. I love making these because they are so easy and quick. The main focal point for this book is my Sassy Clara Bow Digital Stamp design and the Drop Dead Gorgeous Sentiment fits her to a tee.  The cover was made using two pieces of mat board which have been glued and wrapped in decorative text weight paper. The simple tie is a piece of pink satin ribbon.

Clara has been colored with Prismacolor pencils, and blended with odorless turpentine using paper stumps. She was then framed on top of a piece of pink cardstock. The pink flower at her back was made with a punch. I cut out the flower several times and stacked and glued the individual pieces for extra height and then added a rhinestone for a bit of glitz.

The pages were created with one long strip of pink cardstock which have been accordion folded and then glued in back to give the appearance of individual book pages. You can see where the pages meet on the top right photo. I often paste a piece of matching paper over this section to hide this but it also looks good without it. There are no end papers on this book and the first and last page, serve this purpose and are glued directly to the inside of each cover.
