Mixed Media Mini Book

Had to get back to paper crafting again.  I was itching to get my sewing machine out and here is a little mini book I created.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I have sharing it with you!
As you can see it is an 8X10 piece of double sided card stocked folded to make eight sections.  Each section is stitched down the fold lines.  I added bird image and nest cut out from other scrap book paper.  Buttons and blossoms for the front and a cute pink little tie.  I love how it came out and will be trying a few more here soon.

This is so beautiful. It reminds me of Victorian lady's country diary with the flowers and birds.
Stunning.
