DT- Coner Bookmark

Hi there friends,
Today, I have really easy project- that if you haven't tried- you really should! It's soooo super easy & practical! It's a Corner Bookmark.
Here it is:
The Deets:
To begin, I was inspired by the little fleur de lys-type design on the pattern paper. So to coordinate, I embossed the cardstock with the Fleur de Lis Cuttlebug Embossing folder (luuuuv this design!) and also used a coordinating punch along the edge. The patterned paper is called Cosmo- Urban Cosmo by Prima and I also used a strip of the Colony- Urban Cosmos Prima Paper.
This is what Cosmo looks like:
I cut out 1 of the elements to create the focal point of the bookmark.
I added a 2 Prima flowers layered together (Mini-Rose & Hydrangea). I tucked a couple of Rose Leaves on the sides as well. To finish, I simply added a few Prima pearls. Could not be easier!
Here it is in action:
It is marking the page to one of my fav Rachael Ray recipes: Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf Patties with Pan Gravy and Sour Cream-Tomato Smashed Potatoes. That's a mouthful, huh! I do NOT like meatloaf. It looks like a hot mess & I can't stand it. So when I saw this recipe, I thought "If anyone can get me to at least try meatloaf again- it's Rachael Ray." So I followed her 30 minute meal recipe (which always takes me an hour & a half to make) & it was absolutely delicious---> brought a tear to my eye ;) This recipe can be found in her 365: No repeats book. (If you'd like the recipe, just let me know.) I've made about 8 different dishes from this book & they all have been superb!!!

If you'd like to make this super easy bookmark, you can find a tut---> here and all the supplies used to make this bookmark can be found at the YMH Store---> Here.

I'm sorry I haven't posted the winner of the Back to School Candy :( I'll do that tomorrow :)
Thanks so much for peeking!
