Mixed Media Shabby Chic Ribbonwork Journal

I just finished my first mixed media ribbonwork and antique lace journal and thought you might want to take a peek.
It is about 6x9 inches on the outside with the inner pages a bit smaller.

I inclued 6 mini postcards and a thread trading card with a litte girl. Isn't she sweet?
Most of the lace was already this antique color, but I tea dyed the cotton duck pages before I sewed them to better blend.
As always, there are things to change on the next one, but over all I am pleased with it.
May each and every one of you have a wonderful and joyous Christmas season!

    Your lace book is soo beautiful. I love every page !! Stunning how well balanced it is. In colors, lace and pearls. The little leaf lace around the nest and this little heart beside the image of the children. So wonderful all together. It is gorgeous.
