A Minature Book

Hello to you all, I have something a little different today....A Minature Book... 
This measures 6cm x 5cm. closed 

My front cover was made by sticking on the diecut bird and cage then covering a piece of chipboard with Viva Decor metalic paint and some Inca Gold. I have tried to make it look a bit rusty....


the back cover was treated the same but I stamped the letters cut them out and stuck them on with foam pads

My pages are a folded piece of card that I inked with Distress inks and stamped on a selection of Lavinia stamps ( Leaf Trail,Cherry Blossom and Dandilions 2. the words are from Tim Holtz 

I would like to enter this into
Lavinia Stamps "Add Some Gems"
Thats Crafty "Wings and Things
Paper Artsy "Deconstruction" inspired by Pam Thorburns mini album and Julie Ann lee with her Rusty Shrine.
