Butterfly Bookmark

I have created another bookmark.  I'm a bit old-fashioned, so I still like reading books by holding them in my hands - no e-readers for me!

For this bookmark, I stamped small butterflies in black on a strip of green cardstock, added a torn strip of green ledger paper, and stamped more butterflies in black.  I fussy-cut a glittery floral image that I recycled from an old greeting card and affixed to the bookmark.  I embellished with some butterfly stickers from my stash, hole-punched, and added peach ribbon.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Butterflies (Studio G)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Ledger Paper:  Left over from school supplies
  • Ribbon:  Offray
