A Vintage Bookmark

Pages In Time: October Challenges:
1) Design Team Member Lacee's October Challenge: Victorian Style using the image given, including lace, pearls and these colors: pale pink, brown, creme and burgundy
2) My Tags & Things Group bookmark mingle to make 2 vintage style bookmarks

The Shabby Tea Room Week 29:  Pastels and Pearls

The Sunday Stamper Week 123:  String  (including pearls)  Minimal stamping this time around, using Stampin' Up stamps.

Lots To Do: vintage

I minimized the darker colors to just the tiny flowers in the MemoryBox Blackbird mini stack patterned paper and the Ranger Distressed Ink edging--so that I could concentrate on the pastels.  I also picked up the green in the woman's dress by adding a green Websters Pages bloomer which I think is perfect for a bookmark.
