A quiet read

   This week's challenge over at Creative Corner is 'anything but a card'. I decided to make a bookmark.
   I began with a piece of Neenah card 6.5 cm by 18 cm. I rounded the bottom corner using a punch and shaped the top by using a Spellbinders label 6 die.
   The image from the Lili of the Valley stamp ' Times to Treasure' was coloured using Promarkers. The sentiment above the image is from the same set. I made a cloud shaped mask and brushed distress inks over the background. I then added some glitter to the cloud and a few 'birds'.
   I then backed this onto pale blue card onto which was stamped words from an an Elusive Image (now Chocolate Baroque) stamp. Using a hole puncher I punched a hole in the top and threaded through two pieces of ribbon.

   I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Creative Craft 2 - anything goes
   Crafty Sentiments Designs - anything goes
   Lili of the Valley - anything goes
   Eureka Stamps - anything goes
