A Book themed Explosion box

Hi there...

This time i got a different request for an explosion box for a friend who is crazy about books. And here is what i came up with.

I had a couple of ideas for the centre but this is what i liked the best- a stack of books with a cup of coffee on it. looks good right? For the books i used the styrofoam that comes as a  packing material- it was white, layered, holded firm and perfect for this. The cup is a 3D quilled one.

The layout
Loved the colour combo too, both bold colours. Coordinating colours for each panel is what takes a long time. Once the base work is done, then u finish it in a jiffy.

Another View

Below is the some of the different panels. The centre pic has too bookmarks. Since it was book themed, i decided to go with a couple of bookmarks. The first one is actually a magnetic bookmark and the second is a book corner. So basically a gift inside a gift :)

So how do u think this is people. I sure had fun doing something different.
