Daisy Notebook

Good morning!  I know I just made and posted a notebook the other day, but my neighbor asked me to make her a book for a friend of hers and it turned out so pretty that I just has to share it with you.  My friend asked for a book using the color purple and she wanted the word miracles on the front. I didn't have stamp with the word miracle on it so I ended up printing it out on my computer.  I have a post of a tutorial, found here showing how I make these note books.
Here is a close up of the flowers I made using the daisy die.  I used a bone folder to help me slightly fold/bend the flower petals- this gives the flowers an awesome raised look.  The flower centers were punched out using circle punches, and then I put them into the perfect polka dots embossing folder and dry embossed them.  Before I glued the flower centers onto the daisies I sponged the edges using more mustard ink.

Here's another close up photo of the flowers.  I placed them onto the note book cover using dimensionals.  The leaves were cut using the little leaves sizzlit and they were adhered onto the note book using tombow multi glue.  In this photo you can see my ruffled ribbon and I do that by placing a long strip of sticky tape on the book and then I start working the ribbon side to side a bit while bunching up the ribbon and pushing it down which makes it stick to the tape.  I use a paper piercing tool to help me do this.  My sentiment is layered using oval punches and I do have one dimensionals under that to help hold it in place.

I thought I would show you a photo of how I finished off the inside of this book.  As you can see my ribbon is flat on the inside.  I only ruffle the ribbon on the front of the book.

I'm entering my notebook in the following challengess-

Creative Card Crew the challenge was to use the color purple.  Purple must be the predominate color.  I had to play along because purple is also my favorite color!

Totally Gorjuss Challenge- to use both a punch and a die.  I used my daisy die for the daisies (a sizzlit for the leaves) and I used circle punches for the flower centers and oval punches to layer my sentiment.
