Paris Tag

I don't know why, but a pretty or unique bookmark, to me, is the height of luxury! That's why I typically take every opportunity to make them, although  I usually end up giving them away, including them with books or as little "extras" with cards I send. And so, because I'm trying hard to get back into a creative mode, I made this one, which I really hope to keep myself.

The Paris postmark and french script are both Tim Holz stamps; the crocheted flower is just one I've had and wanted to use for some time; and the distressed edges are thanks to Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress Ink . This has been entered into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations             Paris theme, anything but a card
For Fun Challenges         Sit a Bit and Crochet
ABC Challenge              Y is for Yesterday (vintage)
Papertake Weekly          anything goes 
Allsorts Challenge           anything goes
