Happy Birthday Lindsay

Good afternoon!

Well... after a week of no crafts, I found a couple of excuses to make a new mess :). First, nobody can study 24/7, I'm going to need a break at some point... Second, it's my dear friend Lindsay's birthday today (Happy Birthday!), so I put together a card and a bookmark as a gift. 

I recently bought a BoBunny stamp set from the Serenade Collection. Initally, the dragonfly caught my eye (I have a thing for dragonflies), but I absolutely love every detail on this stamp set. The flowers are beautiful and made perfect embellishments just on their own. Needless to say, I was thrilled to give them a go.

A card just wasn't enough for Linds, nor did it satisfy my craving for crafting haha, so I made a bookmark too. I modeled this bookmark off one I did a while ago but tweaked it (improved it!), so that it matched the card too. I made the tassle from two baker's twine colors (Blossom and Pink Sorbet from the Twinery) so that it coordinated with the outer edge of the bookmark. The cardstock is all from MME's Indie Chic collection. Refer to my previous bookmark post for some of the other materials used.
