Papercraft Star Challenge #57

     Hope you all had a chance to grab those freebies we offered last week at Papercraft Star.  Another one went up yesterday in case you missed it.  This marks our second week with our new sponsor, The House Across the Bay.
     For my card this week I used one of the Ancient Manuscripts images behind the tag pocket I created for the front of my card.  Both the manuscript and my copic colored A Day For Daisies image reflect our book theme for this weeks challenge.  I used some beautiful Bo Bunny Gabrielle paper for the large mat.  I created the tag pocket and used some Distress inks to randomly stamp in some colors that matched the DP.  I added a Large Grungy Prim Tag from Kraft Outlet in the pocket.  It can be used as a book mark.
     The "hinges" and the sentiment tag are all Nestie die cuts.
     You can get your "Books" project linked up at Papercraft Star by Monday at 6:00 a.m. EST for your chance at a digital download prize from THATB!
I'd like to enter my little book lover into the following challenges:

Sentimental Sundays--flowers plus sentiment
Stamp Something--August digi day
Craft Us Crazy--anything goes
