Saturated Canary bookmark

Hi to you lovely people who have dropped by on this lovely sunny day - Yes another gorgous day here in the East Mids

Today I've made a bookmark. It's the first I've made since I left school (many years ago) as usually I just use old postcards, scraps of paper or anything else that comes to hand. Anyway Saturated Canary's challenge is to make a bookmark so I have.

I coloured the SC image with pencil crayons and used Marianne Creatable LR0111 die to cut and emboss it. I used Marianne Craftable CR1216 for the flower vine and Cheery Lynn DL112 for the butterfly. As it is a bookmark I needed to keep it quite flat for the book to shut so I just added 3 little gems to give it a bit of sparkle. I tried putting a piece of ribbon at the top but it didn't look right so in the end I stuck an envelope corner on the back so that it will slip over the corner of the page, or it can just be placed in between the pages.




I shall enter this in the following challenges
Secret Crafter Saturday challenge 'Anything but a card'
