Tag Bookmark Card with Rosie

I am a day late, but I had managed to make a card for the La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge. This week's challenge was chosen by our Guest Designers, each of them added something different to the group challenge.

Karin - Two different patterned papers
Kimmi - Color Combination: Strawberries (red), Chocolate (brown) and Cream
Marcea - Embossing (dry or heat)
Paul - Scallops
Sue - Paper Piercing

It did seem a bit overwhelming once I looked at the list, but really almost always we already include most of these elements on the cards that we make. For more details and to enter into the challenge please visit La-La Land Crafts Blog, here is the link.

This is also the second card for my upcoming "Bookmark Cards" class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make three cards in this class, all with different style of the removable bookmarks. To see the first card please click here. I have finished the third card already and will show it to you tomorrow. This class is scheduled for:

Sunday, October 4th, 12 pm to 3 pm
Tuesday, October 13th, 12 pm to 3 pm

Please bring foam tape (pop up dots) and your favorite adhesive to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

$30, 10 participants max

Class kits are available until October 13th, $35 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for this class and/or purchase the kit/s.

This card measures 6" x 6".

Designer paper is by Reminisce. The removable tag is tacked behind the border, once you pull it out you can use it as a bookmark. Martha Steward flower and leafs punches. Small flower punch is by Marvy.

Rosie with Book stamp is from La-La Land Crafts, you can buy it here. Rosie was colored with Copic Markers. Since I had missed the last week La-La Land Crafts "Paper Piece It!" Challenge, I decided to incorporate it into this card and paper pieced Rosie's overalls.

Beautifully done, Irina! I love the "country" look of this card, and the paper piecing you did for Rosie. Bravo!
