Botanical Tea card & mini book

Today I have a card and a mini book to show you that I made with Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper.  My card started with the big, beautiful postcard stamp from Just Rite.  I stamped it several times on patterned paper.  I airbrushed the actual postcard and added the popped leaves, flowers and butterfly on top.

I layered my card with a die cut and several layers of paper for a good foundation.  I've also colored this image with Copics for a simpler card.  I just LOVE it!

I almost always make a mini book when the new Graphic 45 collections come out.  I couldn't resist with Botanical Tea!  There are so many good images to fussy cut!  
My mini measures 4 x 3.

It's easy to decorate the inside pages with tags and other fussy cut flowers and butterflies! Tip: Decorate your inside pages before adding the cover to your mini book.  The pages will lay flat and after you add your cover, they won't.

My back cover is a great place to put the small pictures from the 8 x 8 paper pad.
I had so much fun putting this together!
