Bookmark bear

Hello lovely people,

I hope you all enjoyed yourselves over the bank holiday weekend and wasn't it fab to have some sunshine?  I did loads of gardening which did cut into my crafting time but I can't really complain about that can I?

Anyhoo, it's challenge day over at Lili's Little Fairies and this week it is time for something a little bit different as our theme is 'Anything but a Card.'  I decided to make a corner bookmark and think I will be keeping this one for my own use!

This is the first time I have used one of these cute mini stamps from LOTV and it is the perfect size for a bookmark.  I coloured it with Copics, cut it out with a Nestie then layered it onto a scalloped circle cut with my Cricut.
Here is a shot to show the bookmark 'in action' (on a Sherlock Holmes book in case anyone is wondering!);
Card recipe; 
DP: Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics
Lace: from The Ribbon Girl
Fancy edge: Martha Stewart edge punch

Copic colours;
Bear: E42/43/44 + R30 for ears
Flower: BV00/01/02

The rest of the Fairies have created some fab projects that aren't cards so do pop over to Lili's Little Fairies to take a look.  We have Crafty Ribbons sponsoring us this week so the lucky winner of our challenge will have loads of beautiful ribbons and more to choose from!

Thanks for visiting,

Kat xx
