A New Alphabet Challenge at CS Designs

I just love Alphabet Challenges and this week at CS Designs we move on to the Letter  B  which fit in perfectly with something I've been wanting to make for my Granddaughters. I'm going to add a gift card for Borders and they will be all set for some summer reading fun. So come join us at Paper Craft Planet or Simply Scrappin Crafts for our weekly Challenges for a Chance to win some totally fantastic CS Design Images.

So here are the two bookmarks together. I have used some glitter card stock for the base as well as some Mulberry paper from my misc paper pack and some really pretty ribbons and fibers and some bead work.
 I used one of the new Solitare/ Behind the Mask Images for this bookmark for my granddaughter KayLynn. She just graduated from kindergarten. Isn't the sentiment for a six year old.  The piece behind the image is made using one of the Templates from the Spirelli Templates Manual Kit that you can find in the CSDesigns Store.  The little piece on the end of the beaded portion is made by printing two small images and using dimensionals to hold it on the beading wire.
 And a close up for detail.
 For this bookmark for Claudette I used the Art Montage/ Celestial Goddess Image and colored it with my Copics and did the same Spirelli Design that I did for the Bookmark above. The sentiment is from CS Designs too. Perfect for a 12 and a half year old girl.
 Again the detail. I just love those mulberry papers
 On the backs I used a Tim Holt's mask, stamps and Distress Ink and flicked on some water drops
I will be entering these in the following challenges:
Make It Monday: Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges: use floss, twine or string
Crafts 4 Eternity: Recipie Challenge objects starting with R (ribbon)( round)
Have a great day everyone.

Oh Melissa, These are absolutely Beautiful. I fell in love with the Celestial Goddess one when I saw it in your DT Folder, but this is the first time I have seen the one with Solitaire Lace and Jewels. She is gorgeous too.
