Another Notepad Project

Happy day to you all!
I know a sweet girl who is turning 12 tomorrow and wanted to make her a little gift. So I pulled out one of my notepads and got down to altering it with this sweet Tilda image. I used some handmade mulberry paper this time to cover the notepad with - I love the look of it! I decided to go with quite a vintage/distressed look this time. I coloured Tilda with my prisma pencils and OMS. I found this gorgeous brown lace in the dollar store this morning - I bought all the colours they had (only $1 each)!! The corner flourish is a Bosskut die. The paper is from MME Wild Asparagus pack. Here's a close-up picture. I glimmer misted and glamour dusted the flower but it doesn't show up very well in the photo.
And here's how I finished the inside. I used this gorgeous sentiment and distressed the edges of the kraft paper with my distresser and Frayed Burlap ink. I'm going to put this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Anything but a card' - I think I'm cutting it fine with the deadline!!
Thanks for coming by for a visit! If you haven't done it already, be sure to sign up for the cute Santa stamp - you have until tomorrow evening before I pull a name! Thanks again for all your encouraging and uplifting comments - they continually inspire me to continue crafting!
