Favorite Book is perfect for back-to-school time. The background is a form of paper peeling (TJ newsletter Apr/May 2010). I used a dictionary page torn into pieces and glued to a panel, some masking tape to distress the panel, and some shimmery Creative Inspiration Paints to color it.
The girl was stamped and colored using the paints and cut using a Spellbinders label die. The embellishments were in my stash, but I thought they were perfect to add to a fall, back-to-school themed card.
