Secret Storage Book

I have always loved those books you see in old movies, where they open up to reveal a secret hiding place for cash or jewellery, or the murder weapon!! So, when I saw this book card, I knew I HAD to make one.

This is for our new challenge at CES, where Jenny has a recipe for you

1 image. 2 ribbon, lace or twine.  3DP's

This is surprisingly easy to make, thanks to the fabulous tutorial from Tina.
My 3 DP's are  Websters Pages, available from Crafty Emma's. 
They are so gorgeous, you just don't want to cover them up!

No prize for guessing what's going in my card - I think a few bars of emergency chocolate should fit nicely!!

My dressy Anya was coloured with Copics and paper- pieced, with some tiny pearls on her shoes.
Check out Crafty Emma's for pearls and gems in different sizes.

Don't forget to pop by the blogs of my fellow teamies,
you can get to them by clicking the links on the CES challenge blog.
