A bookmark

Merrigan at Bee Crafty set a great challenge this fortnight to make a bookmark. To help out she's even provided a FREE digi download of a stack of books - go grab it! I've got a guest Design Team spot coming up with Bee Crafty, you're going to love her new designs so watch this space.

I got the colour combo from Little Paper Shop Blog and La-La Land Crafts are asking for paper piecing. Toot toot to me as I won the last challenge at La-La Land for my Vegas card - woo-hoo!

So I used the free stack of books and another of Bee Crafty's downloads - 'whimsical girl summer drink'. The patterned paper is DCWV and I paper pieced her hat and skirt to match. The rest is shaded with Copics and I used another gromlet before pulling a piece of Brenda Pinnick ribbon through. I think this will be a good Christmas present for my Mum as I always need to think of things that are easy enough to post overseas.
