Happy Belated Steampunk Birthday Mini Book

This is a belated birthday posting with a Halloween theme using the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Collection found here. A birthday card and a mini book was the perfect project for a friend who is fond of the Steampunk theme. 
The birthday card was made with some of the left over papers used in the mini book: The Book of Spells. Only a little fussy cutting with some foam squares for this card. 
 Add some Glossy Accents to the watch she is wearing for some dimension.  Some Smooch in yellow is added to the gear necklace and on her wings.
 Card inside: Stamped message is from Stampin-Up On Your Birthday (very old stamp).
Now for the mini book.  This book style was previously posted on here.  This is another version using different papers.
 Add some Smooch in Yellow for subtle shine:
 Hardware with a key to unlock the book:
 Overview of book:

Individual pages: Note the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells Collection comes with these plates easily cut apart for these pages:
Glossy Accents added to some of the images on the pages:
