Sunflower Bookmark

Hi Friends, Happy Labor Day Weekend! I'm here with a project I made for my Local Card Club. The challenge is "Anything but a card". I choose to case Beate Johns beautiful corner book mark. There is a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers here. I didn't put a bow on mine or any raised embellies because it might dent the book pages but I did pop up the flower.  I'll probably make a matching thank you card. 

The image I used is retired Flourishes set. I don't have the name with me as I write this. I  used Crate Paper DP for the gingham and various brands of card stock scraps. The die cut is Spellbinders. I used Momento Summer Sky ink to sponge the background of the die cut while still in the die then stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black. 

These book marks make fabulous small gifts. The theme possibilities are endless! This one is going to my Mom's fabulous Realtor to helped sell Mom's house in 2 days! 

The challenges I'm submitting this to are below.
Thanks for Visiting. :)
