Creative Sketches Week 39 Anything Goes

Now that the wedding is over, perhaps I can get back to some regular posts, challenges and art sharing :0)

However, since it's anything goes week on Creative Sketches, let's visit a particular item I made for the wedding. I've been missing my oriental creating lately and when I designed this guest book for the wedding, I chose Japanese Stab Binding to put it together. A small wedding didn't need a very big book so this album is perfect. The inside pages match the invitations. Our beautiful bride loved this swirl paper so it became the cover. I bound the book with matching silk ribbon tied in a bow. After designing the label, I cut it out with a die, then used the framing technique we use with our Stampin' Up! punches to create the frame. Add in some pretty flowers, leaves and rhinestone centers and a lovely book was complete and ready for wedding day.
