A Pretty Bookmarker

Hello everyone,
   I was in the process of reading a book and realizer  I needed something pretty, and handmade to mark my book.  I used a premade bookmark and inked the edges with weathed wood distress ink. I didn't like the look so I covered it with brick red distress ink and used a Tim Holtz applicator to apply this color on the top of the whole bookmarker.  I then stamped images from SU with SU basic brown ink.  I stamped one setiment with vintage photo distess ink.  I punched the bottom with a scallop dot punch from EK Success.  Lastly I took diamond stickles and smeared over the whole bookmark, and when that dried I took glossy accents and smeared that on and let that dry.  I then took a piece of Pretty in Pink satin ribbon from SU and added that with a piece of cream embroidery floss.  I love the way it sparkles and shines.
