Cricut Cardz Challenge #64

Hello everyone, this is my entry for this weeks Cricut Cardz Challenge which was to make a book mark. I deceided to make a corner bookmark using MS Playful Blue Cardstock. I cut a 4x4" square and marked the middle of three sides. You line up two of the marks on the same score line and score, then repeat on the other side. I cut a 2.75" square and cut it diagonally down the middle. I used one for the front and one for the back to hold it closed. I used the MS Doiley Punch on the green paper and EK Success Threading Water Punch on the Blue check paper. I cut the frame for the flower from Storybook cart. at 2" and one at 1.75". The Ribbon, Prima flowers and reinstone are from Michaels. I thought it came out kind of pretty. Thanks for looking.
