Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 70

This challenge is set by Carole, and she wants us to make anything other than a card, ATC or tag!

We're sponsored this time by



I decided to move away from papercrafts altogether for this one, and made a bookmark.

Before I got into papercrafts, I did a lot of stitching. I started with cross stitch, but soon got sidetracked by Hardanger. I love the effect you get with cut areas, and using varigated threads just makes it even better!

Hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly where anything goes,
Tando Creative where they want fabric,
Moving Along with the Times where they want anything but a card,
Frosted Designs where they want stitching,
