November 2012 PTI blog hop

Happy Holidays!
Wow, how crazy that it's that time already?
This month the PTI hop challenged us to be inspired by a book cover. Nothing popped into my head immediately, so I started browsing book covers! I almost chose the Secret Garden, but instead went with The Catcher In The Rye. It's been a long time since I read it, but I let the CAS design, clean font & gold inspire me.
 I used a glue pen to apply the gold embossing powder for the  border. The sentiment from Tree Trimming Trio is also embossed with gold powder.
Here's the cover:
 
I can hardly believe I've created something without ribbon! After you hop, make sure to stop by the May Arts blog to enter the Thanksgiving weekend giveaway! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by & happy hopping! :)
