Cross Stitched notebook

Hi All. Would like to share with you a make I did to send to a good friend.

It is a handmade notebook with cross stitch pattern on the cover.

I started off with the border of the frame and the filling in the purple.
The stitching up close:
I then  glued it to some card, adding a border page, back card page and all the middle sheets. I then punched through the layers and added 3 hoops to keep it all together.

Back view:
Hope you like & thanks for stopping by :) xxx

I would like to enter this into the following challenge
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Moving Along with the Times - Anything But a card.
