BTC&G Book Card

I have a special project today.  I made specially for the challenge at By The Cute And Girly:
J'ai une création spéciale aujourd'hui.  Je l'ai fait spécialement pour le défi de By The Cute And Girly:

Our sponsor/Notre commanditaire:
I decided to make a book card for a special person.  It took me a long time to make.  I had the whole book finish when I decided it would look nicer with a leather binding!  So I tear out the old one and put this one instead.  The button, pink cord and resin flower are from the sponsor. 
 J'ai décidé de faire un livre carte pour une personne spéciale.  Ça m'a pris beaucoup de temps pour le faire.  J'avais terminé quand j'ai décidé que ce serait plus beau avec une reliure en cuir!  J'ai donc ôté la veille reliure et mis celle-ci à la place.  Le bouton, la corde rose et la fleur de résine sont du commanditaire.
Lots of flowers from WOC.  The metal corner is also from there.
Beaucoup de fleurs de WOC.  Le coin en métal est aussi de là.
I made the frame with polymer clay and a cute mould I got on Etsy.  I airbrushed it with Copics, put some punched butterflies and finished by adding a coat of Crystal Effects. 
J'ai fait le cadre avec de l'argile polymère et un moule.  Je l'ai vaporisé avec mes Copics, ajouté des papillons et fini par une couche de Crystal Effects.
The inside.  Not as pretty, but I was running out of time...  and patience, lol!!!  It looks a lot better now filled with loads of chocolate! 
L'intérieur.  Pas aussi beau que le reste, mais je n'avais plus le temps...  et la patience, *rire*!!!  C'est beaucoup mieux maintenant, rempli de chocolat!
I think that SU sentiment is so beautiful.
Je trouve ce sentiment de SU si beau.
A last look.
Un dernier coup d'oeil.

For the challenge/Pour le défi:
Cute Card Thursday:  Brass in the pocket (My image, corner and sentiment are all embossed with metal powder)
Stampin' for the Week-End:  anything but a card

Hi Brigitte, thanks so much for making such a stunning project for my theme this month, just so gorgeous. You are very observant on the twine. Yes i curled the ends. Thought the twine was fab, stayed the shape you made. Carolxx

Beautiful project, very special. Do you plan to put something inside or will that be up to the recipient?
