Awh man it's stunning!! I love the effects, I've currently been using book pages and glimmer mists to make great flowers for a flower swap, never thought to use the pages themselves. :-)

Amazing card Nic! I love how you've incorporated the book pages with the image, the distressing is amazing! Your image has been superbly coloured too.

I love reading too, especially when I'm on holiday. I don't get as much time as I used to but have just finished The Time Travelers Wife which was amazing!
