Sassy Bookmark

I've been on a bookmark kick. I started by cutting two 3" tags using the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge - one out of Kraft cardstock one out of the design paper. I took the design paper to my sewing machine and stitched around it leaving 1/8" border around.

I printed two of the Latte Lori images. On one I colored everything w/copics except the dress. On the other one I used an animal print stamp and stamped over the entire image.  I colored only the dress w/Copic markers. I trimmed the dress away from the second image and attached to the uncolored dress of the first image. I hope this was the correct way to do paper piecing.  The "cup stamp" image was from my stash. The sentiment is from My Creative Time and was stamped on the edge of a Nestabilities cut with an inked edge. The finishing touch was the bling from Recollections from Michael's and the Grosgrain ribbon. Thanks for stopping by.
