Tilda Loves Books and Farewell TT

Morning all,
Well today I want to share with you my final project for Totally Tilda. I have loved my time with the Tilderettes but all good things must come to an end as they say!
So this fortnights challenge is to create a bookmark.

I created a corner bookmark design that fits over the page using the beautiful Study Tilda. I coloured her using Distress Markers and distressed everything with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I also edged the circle with faux stitching. The DP's were from an old collection by Papermania (sorry the name escapes me). The beautiful heart is created from an MS punch and the butterfly is a DooHickey die.
Well I know it's short and sweet but I will be back soon to share another creation with you very soon.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Tilda's Town - #15 'Anything Goes'
Simon Says - 'Back to School'
MAWTT - 'Anything But Square'
Just Magnolia - #171 'Show me a Heart'
MDUC - #161 'All Stitched Up'

Big Hugs
