I have rather gone off-piste with this card - but I started thinking about 
Hit the Books - and went on to my favourite book...
I also went lilac - I was sure lilac was in the colour scheme!!

My Aunty Hilary (and godmother) gave me this for my Birthday in 1965 - I was 13!

Anyway I printed the image, The book from the Story Time Bundle, coloured it with Copics and then cut it out.
I then overstamped it in lilac Archival with some of my real rubber Pride and Prejudice stamps, masking the image so that I didn't stamp in places where I didn't want marks.
This was to be the main motif in my card, which was a white card base layered up with lilac card, then papers which were magazine freebies.'
I printed the quote on the computer and cut it into a banner, adding some faux stitching with a  fine liner.

I added some more stamps on the bottom right.
Hope you will come and join us!!

Happy Crafting!
