MMM - Literary Inspiration

This week at Make My Monday Mynnette has chosen a book cover for a bit of Literary Inspiration - take a look

Now not being a lover of the classics (I know shame on me as my daughter would say!) I haven't a clue what this book is all about so at first glance my card may not seem to go with the pic at all

I have used a flourish stamp to echo the swirls in the dress and added some white punched flowers as they can be seen in the trees. A splash of yellow was added in the form of a couple of butterflies and my sentiment echos the book title quite nicely I think - do pop over to the blog as my team mates have made some stunning cards this week all of which do far better justice to the picture than mine.

Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Made for You
Ink: Crumb Cake, Versamark
Card Stock: Whisper White, Midnight Muse
Paper: Subtles DSP
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Dimensionals, Basic Rhinestones
Other: Label Die, Flower Punch, Butterfly Punch
(Please see the top tabs for all details on how to place a Stampin' Up order)

This is a scheduled post as I am away at the moment, please do forgive me for not commenting as promptly as I should - I hope to catch up later in the week - Jacqueline xx


  1. Pretty card. I'm so pleased I'm not the only one who isn't into classic literature - english lit was my least favourite subject at school!!

  2. A very different take on the theme Jacqueline and love the simplicity of design.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  3. This is absolutely genius, Jacqueline! LOVE your description and interpretation of what inspired you! This is amazing! :) HUGS, and hope all is going well for you, friend! :)

  4. Beautiful card Jacqueline and not an easy pic to use. x

  5. I think this is a perfect interpretation of the cover - although I really do recommend reading the book - it's great fun! Hope all is well with you Jacqueline. Vicky x

  6. I think your different take on the picture is fabulous Jacqueline. Great to see how different minds and this card suits your style perfectly. Suzanne x
