Fabric and ribbon bookmark

Every month I receive a free magezine from Stampin' Up called "Impressions" there is always something in it to give me a new creative idea. Its a bit like an extension to the idea book and catalogue except it has instructions and a list of materials that makes it easy to whip up one of your own.
Mine never quite come out like the sample in the magazine but that is the great thing: you get the idea, you use the supplies you have and change it to suit your own style. 
 It is made with a piece of wide striped grosgrain (mine is Basic Black) and I have cut out three of the beautiful butterflies dies in Fabric using the Big shot.
 (The fabric is the Cherry Cobbler piece fromTimeless Portrait).
I've Stuck it on with a brad and pieces of cardstock front and back.
 The front piece is covered with multipurpose glue and champagne glass glitter.
You wont lose this bookmark on a dark night... and I have pinched the front piece of ribbon with a thin ribbon (Basic black tafetta) to make the antenae.
I used sticky strip and dimensionals to attach cardstock circles to a piece of hat elastic.
The elastic is stretchy enough to wrap around my Stampin' up catalogue or a regular novel.
One of the best book marks I've made.
What do you think?
