A card with a bookmark

I have storage problems right now, after my buying spree the last 2 to 3 weeks.   Vincent asked me to order what I want for my crafting needs for my birthday,  plus all the laces/ribbons/paper I bought from Hongkong and the flowers Wichit bought for me from Thailand, I am in serious need of storage space!!   I think Vincent is exploding anytime soon, my craft area is in a mess.

Enough of my storage problem, I am sure I will find a solution soon.   Since I was on a draught last week, I decided to make another card with a pre-coloured Tilda with balloons (one of my favourite) which include a compartment for a bookmark, for the :

Material used :-

1.    Tilda with balloon coloured with copic markers

2.    Pattern paper : DCWV citrus stack, cardstock - a dual tone glossy paper I bought from Artland HK

3.    Bookmark tag - above dual tone glossy paper cut sizzix tags, happy die, cotton string from Cosmos Japan.

4.    Crochet lace and pink ribbon from Hong Kong

5.    Paper flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts

6.    Chipboard flower embellishment blossom used as compartment to hold the bookmark

7.    Sentiment stamp : Elzybells

Thanks for dropping by :-)
