So here it is: what do you think?
Maybe not finest work but I'm pretty pleased with the results! The finished book mark is 2 1/2" x 6", and I laminated it so it would be sturdier!
~ Serendipity Stamp set: Ink Splash (320QCL)
~ Light brown card stock
~ Corner rounder
~ Various shades of brown ink
~ Brown thread
~ Sewing machine
~ Hole punch
~ brown fibers
~ laminating supplies ( I used the Xyron laminating cartridge)
First I cut my card stock to size and rounded the corners. Then using my ink and sponges I aged the book mark. Then using the same shades of brown I added the ink splashes. I stamped two of the brushes from the set with dark brown and cut them out. I zig zag sewed around the edges. I then adhered the brushes to the center punched a hole and laminated it. After that I punched the hole again and added my brown fibers.

White Embossing powder
Purple white core cardstock

Cut card front from purple cardstock. Embossing dots on cardstock, and sand to bring out the white. Finished card measures 5 1/2” x 7 1/2”. Cut an oval from white cardstock. Stamp the dandelion and mom on the oval with embossing ink, and shake on white embossing powder and heat set. Using sponge, dab purple ink over stamped image to give it a mottled effect. Mat on a green oval and stitch around the edge. Add a green strip to bottom of card and stitch edges. Add two strips vertically and stitch edges of those as well. Cover bottom strip with green ribbon. Tie a bow using purple and green ribbon and attach at the right side of bottom strip. Adhere oval over two side strips. Using glue dots adhere skittles around oval.
