Bookmark.



  Challenge No 70  this week  over at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Carole.
She would like us to make anything that is NOT a card, tag or an ATC.
Please pop over and see  the fabulous examples my team mates have made for this theme.
We are again sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads, offering a   $10 store voucher for this challenge's  winner.





As I love reading, I decided to make a Bookmark, they also make a  super small gift as well.
The base is stamped  with a variety of stamps. I then added some strips of print from an old French book.
The other additions all came from my stash, shading was Antique linen and Vintage Photo distress ink.
The bird on the ribbon is weighted so it will hang over the front of the book when keeping the place.

I would like to enter these challenges-
Moving Along with the Times - Anything but a card.
Papertake Weekly  -Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
