Botanical Bookplate - Bookmark

Hi all, hope you're enjoying your weekend.  And for those of you here in the UK...isn't this rain just too much? Although we have a lot of trees in our garden to soak it all up, my hubby had to go around and fork the lawn, as it was completely waterlogged.  I'm worried about our new laurel edge, as laurels don't like their roots standing in water.  Hope it dries up soon and we all get some sunshine.
Today I have bookmark created from the new Flourishes Botanical Bookplates Volume 1...available from Make the Day Special.
Apologies for the horrible photo's but it's so dark and dismal here today...
I used a cream embossed card base, then added some DP from my stash stamped and embossed white with embossing powder. I threaded some purple velvet ribbon through a piece of Madeira handcrafted lace, then attached it to the bottom of my bookmark.
Bookplate stamp was coloured with PM's then cut out and mounted onto another piece of cream embossed card. To embellish, I added a purple eyelet, velvet ribbon and butterfly charm, (charm from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop).


Entering this into...
My Bingo middle line down is... Lace, Ribbon, Flowers

Thanks for stopping by xx

Hi Sasha, What a fabulous bookmark! I'd frame it rather than use it in a book and hide all it's gloriousness (is that a word? well it is now!!)Thank you for your kind words on my card, I didn't chalk the background though, it's distress inks with cut and dry foam, just sayin:0) Have a wonderful weekend, Gay xx
