My inspiration for my bookmark came from my friend Cathy. Check out her card HERE.



I made my turquoise using a piece of turquoise colored paper. I took a black pen and drew the veins on the paper. I then covered the paper with hot glue. I glued tinfoil to cardstock and used the die cut to make the "Silver".



I stamped the sentiment from Cowgirls Rule on the bookmark. I took a pen and doodled the edges and added twine.
