Water Color Book Mark Card

Hi all! Well we are back! For the last two weeks we have been on the run and out of town and getting Rachel back to Stephen F. Austin to finish her last year of nursing school!!!! I am exhausted and glad to be back home! We had a great time and I will share some pics later. The last couple of days I have been trying to get caught up on some design team projects that I should have finished up BEFORE I left! Well they are done now and in a few days I can share them with you. But for now I have a quick card to show you that was in my "done" stash.

This thank you card has a little gift book mark attached to the front. I stamped and embossed in gold the image and then watercolored it with Tombow markers. I edged it in gold and then mounted it on a Nestie scalloped rectangle which I pierced along the edges. A tassel was added to finish off the bookmark. The bookmark is held on by a small blue binder clip for easy removal. I have had this cute plaid designer paper and though that it fit the color scheme and design. A short post for today, be back later with more on our trips!
Comments are always welcome and I appreciate and read them all!
