Midway reminder for Simply Magnolia DT

Hi everyone,
I have some midway inspiration for altered address book. The challenge is

 'Anything but a card'

 and as usual I couldn't make up my mind what to make - the problem being too much choice! I'm dreadful at making decisions and so not only do I take quite a lot of time making something by faffing with the design and details but this time I also had the added dilemma of would it be a bookmark, tag, or box. In the end I decided to alter an address book, so it was none of the things I originally had in mind lol!

This is what it started out looking like....

and this is what it has become....

The address book had a beautiful flower on the front and as I didn't want to completely cover it up, I decided to do a scrapbooking type of alteration and tried to keep it to a minimum to compliment the flower in the background.

I used stickles and pearl pen to enhance the flower on the address book

Magnolia Aries Zodiac Tilda (coloured with DI's)  finished with pearl pen, machine stitched edges and Magnolia postmark stamp
Spellbinders labels twenty three
red paper - Basic Grey, green checked paper - Magnolia
Magnolia doohickey orchid, leaf and tag
lace, bead string, gems, doily and dragonfly charm from my stash
