A shimmery A Muse Bouche

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a pirate hat - no, actually it is a corner bookmark! I had seen this idea floating around blog-land, and I decided to try it with the awesome new Shimmer Couture paper from A Muse! It was super easy - just a little bit of folding, made easier with the Scor-Pal. I followed the tutorial here, but I adjusted the size a bit to fit a large square scrap of the Onyx Damask Paper that I had! My square was 5 3/4". I made the pretty monogram using the beee-u-ti-ful new Fancy Alphabet, and the Monogram Frame set. The black and pink are actually the Shimmer Pink and Onyx, but I have not perfected getting a good pic of the shimmer!! I accented the frame with the white pearls! Love them! This will be making it's way to one of my besties as a gift of gratitude for lending me her copy Breaking Dawn. I've had it for an embarrassingly long time!

****Make sure that you hop on over to the A Muse News Blog where you could win an entire set of the wood mounted stamps in this release! Holy Moly! I don't think it gets much better than that!****

wow- you're so talented! when i'm done painting every surface that doesn't move in my house, i'll have to work on some of your amazing projects!

and thank you for the "unsolicited" comment! i forgot to include that part of my plan- there were shelves in that "non-window" when we bought the house, but i had to remove them to get to the cracked & yucky mirrors behind. now that it's a blank slate, i'm thinking fabric or wallpaper backed shelves will be a lovely place for our daughter to display her little princess knick-knacks!
thanks for stopping by-
happy weekend!
