'Tis the season for...books?

Hello there!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I spent mine with tranquil creativity.  I wrote some music, finished crocheting a scarf AND hat, and last but not least, I finished my atc for this week's Wicked Wednesday challenge.  The theme: Books!

At first, I was stumped.  My muse went on a mini vacation.  Did I want to create an ATC of my favorite character?  But, I have so many, which one to choose?  I was toying with the idea of actually making a mini book...then it hit me.  I am going to pay homage to my favorite genre!  Ever since I could remember, I absolutely adored POP UP books!!!  It's a rare find nowadays to find a really good one.

So now I have an idea...the execution is another thing.  Can we say I went through A LOT of templates until I got it right?  haha.  Well, here it is.  I hope you like it just as much as I enjoyed making it...kind of...sort of.  Nah, I did enjoy it :)

Lilly Bunny is going to decorate the if only Bobby Bunny can put that candy cane down and help!

I took two blank ATC cards and glued them to a red cardstock I cut to 3.5" by 5"; I drew the tree template on white cardstock with the same dimensions.  The front cover is a separate ATC.  Then it was just coloring and gluing.

Peace and love,

I placed in the TOP 3 for this week's challenge! YAY!!!! Stay tuned for next week's creation.  The theme: Black and White.
