Bookmark Challenge

I finally finished a challenge on time!!! Of course, it was a small one - that helped!!
Rosie and Linda decided we should create a bookmark. Theirs are beautiful- check out their blog-

I love to zentangle, so this was the perfect choice for my bookmark. I have done them before, but for this one, I decided to use a hang tag, edged it with fancy scissors, and replaced the cord with a piece of coordinating vintage black rick rack.
I threw the bookmark in a piece of pottery, while cutting the rick rack and getting the camera ready - and it looked kind of nice in there!!!

Next month, I am hosting a tea party/book exchange, and I'm thinking these bookmarks might be just the thing for everyone's "new" books!!
