Books for Guyz - DT card

This week's challenge over at Cardz4guyz is World Book Day.  Apparently, in England we celebrate it wrong.  UNESCO have designated it as 23rd April so we should be ok this week.  The challenge is to use books or book titles as the inspiration for your project.  So, not up my street at all - she lied!  Oh my goodness where do I start?  So many books and I only need to make one card. Argh, the frustration!  In the end I glanced over at my very neglected wood mounted stamps and the book title just screamed at me.  I love this stamp.  I've had it for ages and rarely get an excuse to use it.  I also love the books that inspired me.  I have to admit to binge reading all three at once.  My card is inspired by 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' by Stieg Larsson.  I hope you like it.

I scanned the picture so it looks a bit cut off.  Sorry, I'm trying to improve the quality of my images.  I used a bokeh technique for the background and added some sequins to finish it off.  The stamp is from Creative Expressions but it's so old I doubt it's still available.  I hope you will join us for this fun challenge.  I really love checking out what everyone else comes up with.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x
