Cherry Blossom Book Mark

Something different. Something kinda pretty, and really easy! I made this book mark for the TSG68 challenge that's going on over at the There She Goes blog today!

Every week the Trendsetters host a challenge and this week it just happens to be book marks of all shapes, sizes and types :) To be eligible for a $5 gift certificate to the store, simply create your book mark and link the photo to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the challenge post over at the TSG blog.

Sorry for the crumby photo of my book mark! I was wrestling with my light box to get the book mark displayed nicely and my light box was playing dirty! The book mark kept falling over and tilting to the side so I whipped out a piece of white card stock for the back ground and snapped the picture in a huff. That will show my light box with-an-attitude. Pffftttt ;)

I used the cherry blossoms and sentiment from one of the newly released sets called The Journey. I water coloured the background with my Ranger Distress Denim ink and then tackled the blossoms themselves with my Tombow's. I think sponged the edges with some suede and antique linen inks and finished off the book mark with some coordinating card stocks and ribbon.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope that you get a chance to play along with us :D
