Vintage style Bookmark

Hello friends and followers and anyone else who pops by my blog.

Happy April Fool's Day and Easter Monday. Still like winter here as far as the weather is concerned but the forecast says it the temperature may be a little bit higher later in the week so that will great.

At Rhedd and Rosies challenge blog this time the theme is vintage/shabby. Not something I am very good at so I have kept it small and made a bookmark

The stamps were free from a magazine a long time ago and it did say Vintage Collection so that bit is right.

The bookmark is double so fits over the top of the page which keeps it in place. I used the same Distress ink colour on the background, the edge, the circle and the lace so that they would all match.

Not very inspiring really but I did enjoy making it

Love Chrissie xx
