Wednesday Challenge Bookmark

Hi everyone. 
Thought I would make a simple bookmark for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #64 this week.  I got this paperstack last week at Joanns and it is some of the prettiest paper I have seen by  K&Company.  I believe it is their garden collection. 104 pieces including tags and borders along with beautiful papers, many with foil.  The one I used actually has some foil accents but they don't show up as well in a picture. I found the biggest challenge here was photographing the project.  Bookmarks need books.  Here is mine.

TBBM cartridge Row 1, Key 7
Row 3, Key 6 (flower tag)
I welded them together and sized it at 6.32.
I hid all the tag holes
Green cardstock from Stampin UP.
I cut two full tags, One in dsp and one in cardstock. 
Martha Stewart punch on the dsp. 
Three additional flowers cut at 2.41, 2 and 1.5 to layer
I curled the flowers around a pencil, punched holes in all layers and attached with a brad.
Finally a little stitching along the green edge
Well you can see I like "chick" books.  I have to be honest, I haven't started this book yet.  My BF gave me three of her books to read.   READ...........who has time to read with all this blogging.  Besides when it is 83 outside, I don't want to be inside reading.
This was fun.  Have to search for some more challenges, so I will probably be back later after I mow the lawn.
See nice
