I love it when I come across a new technique. This one was shown to me by one of my members of my Facebook Group The Joy of Sets.  Called the Open Book Easel Cards there are a few tutorials on You Tube to discover - I came across one made by Tina Zinck and her enthusiasm for this type of card is quite infectious.

I used some old Kaisercraft papers called Take Note for my pages.  I really liked the one that had the words which was very apt for a book.  My flower is also from Kaisercraft from the Rosabella set. I coloured it in with Tri Blends by Spectrum Noir in Vintage shades and cut them out.  The sentiments are from Stampin Up A Special Someone..  The butterflies were cut out with old SU butterfly punches and some tiny pearls added. 

I love how this turned out and have caught the bug - I've made a few more which I will be sharing on my blog in the very near future.

I found a great challenge on my travels which suits this - called A Vintage Journey and their theme is flowers.  
I'm also adding this into Creative Moments - Anything Goes
