Write Your Own Fairy Tale

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today with another card using the Magical Fantasy dies.  I wanted to make a card that had a "possibilities" theme to it.  I thought the combination of this die, sentiment and an old book fit that bill. 
I started by inking the background to the castle using Distress Oxide inks in various shades of blue.
I used the second largest of the Wacky Stitched Oval Dies to cut the oval for the castle.
I cut the castle pieces from white card stock and used Distress Oxides to color those as well.
I assembled those on the oval.
To create the "book" I used a weathered wood paper cut to 4 1/8 x 5 1/2 inches.  Then I cut a piece of ivory card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2  inches.  This gave me a little bit of the pages peeking through.  I used ink to add patina to the edges of both.  I also used two strips of "tin" card stock cut to 1/2 x 1 inches for the hinges.
I added three ovals of dark brown underneath the main oval to form the medallion.
I stamped my sentiment on ivory using brown ink and distressed the edges using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks.
To finish everything I used two tiny screw brads on the hinges and some rhinestones for the stars in  the sky.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend!
