Bookmark swap

I recently took part in a book mark swap over at Cardmaking Paradise. Mine didn't turn out quite as I had imagined. I had intended cutting a semi circle around the sunflower but I chickened out as my cutting skills are not the best if it doesn't involve a craft knife and metal edged ruler!

Card Recipe

My beautifully shimmery swap below came from Hilda. She made it using Grungepaper and it has the feel of leather. The colours are gorgeous - silver with just a hint of purple and lime. Such a clever idea cutting partially around the birdcage so the bookmark slips over a page. Thank you Hilda.
