A cute card!!

Well it is for me.
Over at Stampin' Dymonz' Scrap Shack, otherwise known as The Village, we have a card making group where, each week, a card with a different fold is showcased. This week is the card with detachable bookmark. A useful card that comes with an extra small gift for very little extra effort.
Totally made from bits in my scrap box, it was also a very economical card as well.

I followed the simple sketch over at Willow Sketch Challenge blog.

Red card stock with some flowery papers, matted onto white card stock.
The image is from Willow Designs. One of the stamps that I won over at The Craftbubble forum a while back, stamped with memento ink and coloured with promarkers with a light touch of ink distressing.

The "lace" is adhesive paper lace coloured with a promarker.
I wanted to carry this over to the bookmark and didn't want to add bulk, thereby damaging the book it would be used in.

The paper was added to with a sentiment and simple flower stamped with red ink and heat embossed with red sparkle. A little group of gems in the corner.

The ribbon was attached with tiny staples that are covered by the matting and layering.

I am entering this into the challenge over at
Willow Sketch Challenge - Their Sketch
