Bookmark CASEing Kelly

I saw a bookmark made by the amazing Kelly Latevola earlier this week, and I decided I needed to make one like it!  I pulled out the same stamp set, and pulled out my Copics, and got stamping and colouring, but I decided that I wouldn't go back and look at Kelly's magnificent creation (see it HERE) to jog my memory of the exact details, because then I would just end up copying hers!! All I remembered was that she used the Hero Arts Butterfly and Flower stamp set, and coloured them with Copics.  Mine turned out much simpler (and not nearly as awesome as Kelly's!)


I'll be submitting this to Keep it Simple's bookmark challenge (where you will also find Kelly's completely fabulous entry - please go and give her some love!)  And, because I used a tag topper scalloped punch from Stampin' Up, I'll also be submitting this to Virginia's View "Tags and Scraplings" challenge.  My recycled item is the short scrap of gingham ribbon, which was originally wrapped around a gift I was given last year.
