A second sample for Sarah - "The Chaffinch" Bookmark Card

Todays sample for Sarah has been created with the Chaffinch design set, and Ive printed the topper sheet out onto photo paper and used three of the pictures from it, the main topper for the inside and two smaller ones for the front.
This is a bookmark card, and as you can see Ive created two pockets on the inside for the two bookmarks that Ive also printed onto photo paper, and cut them out by hand and put them through my laminator. I used two backing paper designs for the inside, and have layered one of them onto gold mirri card, one for the centre and two smaller ones for the pockets. The main topper was then mounted onto gold card, and Ive created a square from some bronze pearlised paper and the bird all around Martha Stewart punch set and popped it underneath the mounted topper. The verse below it was printed onto second of the paper before being cut out and stuck down under the mount.
The outside of the card has two panels and one paper design, which I have used on both of them and on top of this these Ive put the two smaller toppers which I have mounted onto pieces of gold mirri board, in the two corners Ive used some gold corner peel offs, and the sentiment is another of the tags that Ive put a sentiment on in My Craft Studio, after which Ive put some peel off around the edge before mounting it onto a cold mirri card scalloped mount.
To finish of Ive punched some fern leaves out of some bronze pearlised paper and popped a Prima Poppy on top.
