Bookish Spinner Card

I made this card for the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge to make a spinner card.

I used a light pink card base and a darker pink topper. I die cut a large circle out of both layers for the spinner to go. I stamped 2 images from All Booked Up on white cardstock (the woman reading in the photo below and the boy reading under the tree) in dark grey ink and die cut them out. I attached the 2 circles with the string between them. I then used double sided tape to attach the string to the light pink layer before putting the dark pink layer on top.

I stamped my sentiment, also from All Booked Up at the bottom of the card, the decided that the top panel looked too empty, so I used some stamps from the Daydreamers set to simulate a garden where the two people on the spinner are reading. At this point I realized my sentiment had smudged, and so die cut a label and stamped the sentiment onto that. I used double sided tape to attach the ribbon, and then put the label on top with pop dots. I also added 2 punched mini butterflies.

Terrific card. I love that stamp set. Saw from your profile that you used to work at the WBBS...I loved going there.
