Anything But A Card

It's time for a new challenge over at 2 Sisters Challenge Blog.  This week is something that we have never done before at 2 Sisters. Our theme this week is anything but a card.  So for my non card inspiration I decided to make a book mark for my daughter. 

The face and buttons are done using the Winter Face Assortment rubber stamp set from Peachy Keen Stamps. To create the buttons I simply inked just one of the pieces of coal on one of the larger snowman faces and stamped it 3 times going down the bottom of the book mark.  The sentiment is typed up on the computer and of course I made the S and O larger than the N and W in SNOW so that the word SO would pop off the book mark.  The scarf is done using red ribbon and a white glitter snowflake button. i colored the face in with prisma color pencils.  I backed the whole bookmark in black card stock.

I am entering this bookmark into the following challenges:

Absolutely brilliant! I love it. One of my NY resolutions is to get back to being a bookworm - the computer seems to have taken over my love of books. :o( Thank you for joining in with us at Creative Craft World.
