Magnolia vs Stampavie - Make a Gift

Magnolia vs Stampavie's challenge this week is to make a gift, so I've made myself a gift!!
I am forever making bookmarks only to end up giving them away, very often to the same people - what do they do with them? This one is MINE - and I'm not giving it away.
I used and old Tilda image, coloured it with Pastels, matted and layered it onto K & Co Poppy Plaid paper. I backed it similarly and fastened ribbon between the layers. I normally laminate them, but hesitated to do so as I had that feeling that photographing it would then become difficult.
Materials
Magnolia - Tilda
Derwent pastels
Cuttlebug - Vintage corners & Spellbinders Nesties
Ribbon from stash
