So what started out as an innocent bookmark for the Saturated Canary Challenge, kind of took on a life of it's own....

This image is titled "Thank You"
and you can find it here.
This pic seems blurry, but if you 
click on it, it looks better.(weird)

I had planned on this being pretty small, maybe a corner bookmark, so I cut out her head because her entire body would never fit on a SMALL bookmark.  Then I started looking for paper.  Then I saw a stack of tags that I have never really played with... and basically this thing probably weighs half a pound now.  I had to cover the front of the tag with pretty paper.  Now the back looks naked, needs more paper.  So I finally cut myself off and here's the end result!  I left the paper around her stark white because I really wanted her cute little face to stand out.  This paper is from My Mind's Eye Indie Saffron pad.  I really love this pad, and I need to get a few of the other shades they have.  The sticker across the bottom was a corresponding set of MME Indie stickers that went with the paper I bought.  The wonderful sentiment is from my new Some Odd Girl Thank You Mae set.  I used some lace, ribbon, natural twine and beads from my stash.  Last, but not least, a few brown pearls in the corners by the image. (love those brown pearls.)  I distressed some of the edges and added  some distress ink around the outer part.  

Well, I'm off to work on some more challenges!!  TFL!
