I *discovered* a new card design the other day and just had to give it a try. Diane's Daydream Designs has great digi stamps and tutorials. On her blog she has several free tutorials and the one that REALLY caught my eye was the one for a Bookmark Card. Several friends & family members are avid readers so I have a feeling I'll be revisiting this design. Diane's tutorial was easy to follow and I really like how my card turned out.
Here's a picture with the bookmark removed
