My first attempt at Parchment

My first attempt at Parchment. I have always thought about giving this craft a go. Recently I have watched demonstrations on television and wondered if it was worth a go. I adapted a project from a magazine to include materials I had and using the recipients favourite colours. The corner holds the bookmark keepsake in place.

It is far from perfect but my Mother-in-law loved it.

The corner die used is by Heartfelt Creations. I have used brads from my stash. I have printed a sentiment and die cut it with a Go Kreate die.
