#111 Here Comes Summer

This week's challenge over at One Stitch at a Time is Here Comes Summer. I chose Barb's image of Sunflower for this challenge.You can buy it here.  I decided to make a bookmark. What could be better than sitting in the garden, in summer, and reading a book?

I used a piece of white card cut to size. The sunflower backing paper is from one of my CDs - unfortunately I can't remember which one as I had the sheet printed and in my 'yellow' drawer.  On the front of the card I used my Distress Ink in Mustard Seed to colour the background before adding the digi image of the Sunflower. I had coloured the flower with my Promarkers before cutting with my Spellbinders rectangle nestie, using the scalloped nestie for the mat. 'Enjoy Life's Moments' is a Hero Arts stamp which I stamped in Memento ink across the top. A Joanna Sheen tassel completed the bookmark after it had been laminated.

Our sponsor this week is Creative Craft World who will be supplying three Promarkers. 

I'm entering this bookmark into the following challenges:
Always Crafting - Yellow and Sunshine
The Pink Elephant - Hello Sunshine
I love Promarkers - Floral Image
Little Darlings Challenge - Flowers
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Moving Along with the Times - Gardening or Flowers
