Matter of Moments Notebook

I know I've been MIA for awhile. There's a laundry list of reasons why but I wont bore you with that. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of posting. This is one of a handful of notebooks I made for someone that wanted to give as gifts. I was really happy with out this one came out. for some reason I was having trouble creatively putting this together. My customer was specific in colors but let me design. It's a bit hard to tell in the pic but there is some embossing on the black, I used the large swirly image from the Creative Elements stamp set.

Paper: News Print Specialty, Cherry Cobbler CS (this color looks red in pic), Textured Basic Black CS, Vanilla CS

Stamp Set: Creative Elements, Elements of Style & School Lines

Ink: Versa Mark & Basic Black

Accessories: Butterfly Die, Perfect Pennants Die, Decorative Label Punch, Punch Bunch Pack, 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, Neutrals Buttons and Rhinestone Jewels. Clear Embossing Powder, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder

TIP: I wanted the Scallop that the butterfly was going to sit on to be firm and hold it's shape so I added some of our DSP backing board to the cardstock before running it through the Perfect Pennants die.
