I love books at the moment I read a Swedish author called Fredrik Backman. This is his first book and it´s called "A man called Ove" .

En man som heter Ove

This is well worth reading. It´s easy to read, fun (I find myself sitting smiling all the time) and a very well told love story...

 Meljen´s Challens Blog has a challenge called Bookworm. You have to find inspiration from a book. I would love to do something from "A man called Ove" but since Melissa was so kind and provided an image from Alice in Wonderland. I decided to use that one. I combined it with another image from Meljen´s called Big Sweater Kid. I had this one for a while but have not used it before. I used fall colours to match his big sweater.

I used a paper with lots of text on it (like a book). I sprayed it with a glimmer mist from Tattered Angels it shimmers beautiful but unfortunately you can´t see that very well. I have coloured with ProMarkers and Faber Castel pencils. Also added some stickles and a few dew drops.

Also added a sentiment freebie from Create with TLC. I thought this was perfect with a birthday book theme...

I found a new to me challenge blog called 2 Cute Ink. Their theme this week is AG so I´ll have a go. will you?

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:
