I am really pleased with the way this turned out. I am glad that I perservered. I started out with two playing cards that I painted silver. I am participating in the Mixed Media Monday challenge again http://mixedmediamonday.wordpress.com/2009/11/23/playing-cards-2/ To the playing cards I added a pop up and some snowflakes. I was thinking I would make a small book this way. But it looked kind of lame and I wasn't happy. So, I took a break. Sometimes I just need some noodling time. I decided I would take the cards and add them to my nature themed altered book. From there I added the doilies and swirls and more snowflakes and a second pop up. I LOVE POP UPS!!! I have a large of collection of pop up books. I'm a child at heart.
