a sassy bookmark

Hello sweet sassy friends!
Well, the weather is getting colder and it's getting dark really early so is there anything better than snuggle on the couch with a blanket and read a good book? I love those winter evenings and all that's missing is the sound of the fire from a fireplace - unfortunately I don't have one so I have to imagine this.LOL

But to make reading even more fun I created a bookmark using on of the first Sassy stamps available. Unfortunately it is not up on the webshop at Funkykits at the moment so I am not able to give you a link
but the name of this cutie is Romantic Dreamer.

I made a paper rosette with quite flats pleats so the bookmark will fit in a book. I added some cheesecloth, some punched flowers, some distress ink and a few rhinestones.
The paper rosette was made from 2 square pieces of cardstock, folded every 1/8". Then two ends of one strip of folded cardstock have been put together to create a half circle - later the two half circles were brought together as a whole circle. 

The back of my bookmark isn't too spectacular - I just used a large paper clip and only fixed it at the very top part so the bottom part still moves and a paper can be put in it.

Here's what I used to color the image in:

Now I'm wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!
