New Project (as promised!)

Hi everyone!

So now that I'm all done my BIG exam, I have more time to be creative - it feels great - no matter what the exam result may turn out to be!

I'm now starting to get ready for a tradeshow I have happening in my hometown on October 16th.  I've decided to make a bunch of bookmarks since they went over so well at my last workshop for my friend Danica. 

So both the bookmark and the matching card feature a set from the Holiday Mini called French Foliage.  It is gorgeous - the leaves are so lifelife and it also includes a stamp with french script on it for backgrounds.  I used the script stamp in Crumb Cake for a background, then sponged all the edges.  The leaves are stamped in Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Wild Wasabi with Soft Suede around the edges.  They're both finished off with a couple squirts each of Smooch Spritz in brown and gold.  The bookmark also has Always Artichoke seam binding and Chantilly lace at the top, anchored with a vintage brad.  The card has a sentiment from the hostess set Afterthoughts.  

I really like how they turned out!  Definitely a nice fall vibe.  

What do you think?
