Swirls and Flourishes

I have something old and something new. No, I'm not getting married again! lol I've been married to my HS sweetheart for 32 years this November:) The first one is a bookmark card that I just finished. I was waiting on my order to come in yesterday with all that free ribbon in it!! There is a diagram showing dimensions for making it just under the project details. Click to enlarge.

The second one is the old card, well a week old. It's for our Color Me Beautiful Challenge, but my selection of ink pad colors was limited, so I originally used Basic Gray on the tree. Now I have lots more ink pad colors, so I revised the top layers and stamped the tree in Lucky Limeade instead. The original card is the last one. Which do you like best? Please come play along with us on the Color Me Beautiful Challenge Blog.

  1. These are beautiful. I love the blue one. I haven't made one of those kinds of card in a long time, but I should! They are really impressive.

  4. They are all fabulous!! Personally, I think I like the gray tree, just because it's a little different.

    Any way you would share dimensions on making the bookmark card? These would make great gifts for my coworkers at school!
