Butterfly Bookmark


The cue word at CASology this week is book.


I don't really have any book stamps, so I thought I'd make a bookmark.  Which will come in useful, because I still prefer to read old-fashioned books rather than electronic books - despite being pretty much surgically attached to my iPad.

Here's where the inspiration came from:

Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Honouring Ombré.  I'd honour that cake any day, ombré or not!


Muse inspiration, provided this week by Lori:


And Anything Goes at Simon Says!


Butterfly and swirl: Clearly Besotted Butterfly Wishes
Butterfly die: Clearly Besotted
Sentiment: pre-loved Stampin' Up set, so might be discontinued?
Distress Inks: Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord

  4. Ombre...beautifully captured and showcased on your bookmark! The colors are beautiful. The butterfly is the perfect image - fits perfectly!

    ...I also prefer a real books rather than a reader. It seems so much more relaxing, feeling the pages between my fingers than hanging on to an electronic item :)
