Joan's Challenge envelope bookmark

Good Morning Ladies,
Another fine Monday has come to a start. I had a very nice weekend.
To start off this week I am joining in on Joan's Challenge envelope bookmark. Here is the link so you can join too or just hop over to see what everyone has created.....
The challenge requirements are..
create a corner bookmark using selma's tutorial and a junk mail envelope
cover the front and back of your bookmark
You can see Selma's tutorial at
I love upcycled projects.
So here is my bookmark.....
 I thought I would keep with the upcycle theme. I used extra pieces from previous projects to create my bookmark. The leaves are cut from a Cheery Lynn die. The flower is stamped and handcut from a Heartfelt Creations stamp set. The bird is from an Inkadinkado clear stamp set. The stamped images are colorized with Prisma pencil and Gamsol. The corner is covered in dsp from DCWV. Braid creates the edge.
This is the back of my bookmark. I used the same braid on the back just so it wasn't so plain.
I loved this project. It was simple and fun! Thanks again Joan and Selma for a great challenge!
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
