Charisma DT and Just Magnolia

The new challenge is up at Charisma and the challenge this week is Match Master - to make a matching set, like a card and envelope to match,
I was going to make a card and envelope but my camera is still broken and I was a bit worried that I wouldn't manage to scan them together for the challenge blog pic, so I decided to do a card and a bookmark instead.

 The challenge at Just Magnolia is to make a pink card so I went with that and made it very pink lol.
I used an old Magnolia stamp that I got from a special friend a while ago and coloured her with Promarkers.
The papers are Bo Bunny, Doodlebug and Paper Adventures, some ribbon and gems from my stash and a pretty embroidered butterfly from Little Snippets Etsy store.
I kept the bookmark really simple and just used 2 of the same papers and ribbon as the card. The butterfly is a little darker than the one I used on the card because I didn't have 2 left the same colour, but I don't think it matters.
If you haven't visited Little Snippets, I really would recommend you go have a look. Geraldine who is one of my dt girls at By The Cute and Girly is the owner and she makes the most beautiful embroidered embelishments and also crotchet flowers, butterflies etc, they just add a special touch to your project and I love them because you can embelish your cards with them and not have to worry about them being really bulky like it is with the flowers that we all use, which was great for me because I had to scan and can't get a proper scan when I use flowers, so these were just the job :)

I have just passed my 2 year blogging birthday on the 26th, so there will be some candy to celebrate, I am just waiting for some goodies to arrive and will have to borrow a camera from somewhere to take a pic of them lol, but it shoudl be on within the next few days, so keep an eye out for that! :)

 Thanks for stopping by.

They are gorgeous Lora and I think the choice of a bookmark to match is better than an envelope as it will be used and not disgarded.
