Hi Bookworm

Die Cuttin Divas has a fun challenge going on this week so I thought I'd play along.  The challenge theme is library  day, and the challenge is to use a book on your project.  This is perfect for me given a treasure of library cards that one of my sons gave me a couple years ago.  He visited the Christian school he used to attend, and they were removing the old library cards from several books to replace with new ones and he had asked to go through them to find ones that he and his siblings had checked out.  He then brought the stack to me and I've kept them in a Ziploc bag trying to decide what to do with them.  That is until now....
 
 
For my card I used the bookworm from the Back to the Books file from Treasure Box Designs.  I had to delete several other elements from this particular file so I could cut just this particular worm but once I deleted them and then grouped these pieces together in my Cricut Design Space I cut the file at 3.45 inches high.
 
 
The blue ribbon on my book is from the Cricut Cartridge Happy Graduation.  I cut my ribbon (and my apple) from a metallic paper and then added some stickles to the center of the ribbon so as to add a bit of 'glitz'.

The stamped "hi" is from the Say it Big stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas.  One the inside of my card I used a quote from Dr. Seuss that says "The more you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
