Midway LOC -My Favourite Book

The current challenge at LOC is My favourite Book

  (but there's also an 'anything goes' at the moment for LOC's First Anniversary)

I remember from my childhood, a favourite book -
 it was a diary with a lock - and an embossed leather cover!

This was my inspiration for my DT card...and orange is my favourite colour!
I hope my card inspires you to enter this challenge!

Here, in India, all sorts of papers can be found!
The orange, swirly, shimmery, shiny hand-made paper I found in a local bazaar.
 On this I printed Delicious Doodles 'The Raven' in black (reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe!)
I also came across this embossed border - and to this I added 'wild honey' distress ink.
I cut 4 black corners on my Bigshot and added a keyhole embellishment and a be-ribboned key.

I am also going to link this to Quoth the Raven Tic Tac Toe
(Ribbon, Emboss, Shimmer)
Delicious Doodles Challenge #80
(Black plus orange)
Happy Crafting!


  1. I love the textured look of this and your choice of colours. I also like the way you've added the embellishments to give the impression of a secret diary book.

  2. Gorgeous papers and die cut corners. I love the embossed backer too. This is a fabulous card. Thank you for playing along with us at QUOTH THE RAVEN :-)
