very nice bookmark... quite unique. I make mine of cross stitch... with a simple lace around it... Hope I learn how to upload it and show it to my Fave Crafts friends!

I love making bookmarks, and I think this one is very pretty! Normally I just paint my designs on the watercolor paper in either acrylics or watercolors, but I love the look of this one and the way this is embellished a bit more! Very cute! Laura Thykeson
