Dawn's 900th Post Giveaway

I am so thrilled to receive Dawn's (The Feathered Nest) 900th post giveaway! Just to have one thing she has made is such a privilege. She does such a fabulous job on every little detail, inside & out. I love the rusted key & the sheer ribbon that ties it all together. Plus she enclosed a lovely bookmark that is trimmed with lace. Isn't it precious!! (If you right click on it you can get a closer view of her work.)
Well, I was so inspired by her bookmark that I have been working on a few to add to cards, gifts, etc. As I stated in the previous post I get the pictures from numerous generous ladies. Mostly I have been using the ones from Clearly Vintage.
I added some of my Mom's rick rack to the bottom and some vintage lace to finish off the bottoms. Adobe Photoshop is a tremendous help in creating a delightful piece. I have so many others to show you that I finally finished so I will post them in under a separate heading. This post is all about Dawn.
Thank you, Dawn for the beautiful gifts and the inspiration that you give to us so freely!! You truely are a lovely friend to soooo many...Sharon
