My first book card

Good afternoon everyone! I've been working on this book card for a couple of days first one and it definitely won't be my last!!! Thanks to my dear friend, Danielle, for her assistance with the measurements. I have to admit it took two tries to get the inside accordian frame to be acceptable. This needs some practice.
This card was totally inspired by the incredibly talented TRINE. She is an amazing
artist and she does spectacular work with the Kenny K images. You can see her magnificent card HERE.
The inside of the card features another Kenny K image inserted in a pocket and I added truffles in the center. Papers are from the BG Sweet Threads collection. The images are colored with copics.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you are having a great beginning of the week!
Much love, Christina
