FWF and itty bitty Day 4

I have become somewhat obsessed with making cards since Unity Stamps started the itty bitty {show & tell} challenge.  Today for FWF I made a card.  I am trying to get pages done but I just keep making cards.  Today,  I went out of my normal card making style.  I do not know if any one out there has ordered from  the warehouse sale at Webster's Pages? Well I did a while ago.  I packed it away and kind of forgot about it.  But, today took it out and had a look.  It has only been like 2 years.  I love the prints on Webster's Pages.  They are so gorgeous.  But, I find that I have a really hard time using the products. It is a little more fancy than I am and I find you really need the right picture to compliment it. So to continue with my season of challenging myself I took on using it.
         I tried to use actual cork for the background.  After a frustrating hour I gave up and went with the paper version of cork.  I had it all planned out at 3 am in the morning.  I learned a 10am in the morning that, I need to find thinner cork.  I will have to tweek this a bit.  If any of you out there are in a Book Group, you know, this is a perfect card for them.  I need to make 6 more.  I may try to make a picture,  I can frame. That would be the definition of perfection for a Christmas gift for book group members. I guess I will have to ponder that another night at 3am.
