Sew Special


I made this for one of the Quilty Girls.  I made a bookmark using a card I had previously coloured and splattered and used most of.  It just needed the stamp and then I sandwiched a scrap of  fancy  ribbon between.  The holder is partial-cut circle dies. Some yellow p.paper borders, one stamped with the gold-embossed sentiment.  Some stamped and fussy-cut accessories, embroidery floss and a charm.  Another photo with the bookmark removed - it still looks ok without the bookmark in place.

Word stamp:    Stamp-It

Accessories & senti stamps: magazine freebie

Also: embroidery floss, white pen, charm
