Matching Card and Bookmark

Today's project is a follow-up on my card (see here). I love the stamp set that my friend Tasnim
 (Runway Inspired DT) designed. With some simple stamping, you've got a gorgeous result! I added strip of gold paper for the card and a small strip of cork for the bookmark. And that's it!card and bookmark
There are three stamps that are designed to stamp the roses alone. I love it when the stamp set makes you feel like a PRO. I will keep you posted when Tasnim's stamp set is ready for sale!

I am excited about this weekend as Dr. John and I are off to the legendary Sir Elton John's concert! It will be our first time seeing Elton John performing live! This is one of many songs I love from Elton John. Wonder what songs he will be playing!!?
Enjoy "Tiny Dancer"!
Happy weekend!
