You are my shining star!

Hello are you?
I hope you've been having a wonderful weekend!  I've had a nice, peaceful weekend around here. A bit of shopping, a bit of crafting and a lot of eating out - perfect!

I have a quick project to share with you this afternoon - this is for the "Monochromatic" challenge going on over at The Peachy Keen Connection....

I made a sweet bookmark for my equally sweet granddaughter, Emma....

 (click on photo to enlarge)

* I used the cardboard from the back of paper stack to create a base for my bookmark.
* I covered the bookmark (front and back) with a dark yellow cardstock, then a smaller, lighter shade of yellow that I embossed.
* Those sweet stars are from the Peachy Keen Stamp Club set PKSC-14.  I stamped the stars onto the SVG file that I cut from white cardstock.  Next, I stamped the stars again onto that sweet yellow gingham paper, adding those adorable little faces.
* After coloring the facial details, I covered the white portion with Glossy Accents and coarse glitter.

* The sentiment is also from the PKSC-14 stamp set.
* I added a few yellow gems for some sparkle and a bit of embroidery floss for a tassel.

And there you go...a sweet bookmark for a sweet girl!
Thanks so much for stopping by - I always look forward to your visits!  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I'm off to clean up my messy craft corner and put away a few of the goodies I purchased this weekend!  See you soon....

Until next time,
