Vintage lace bookmark

I bought this lace from a shop in Bridlington, they sell absolutely everything including this yummy lace ribbon for the grand price of 25p for 3 metres!!!!

I have made this bookmark to enter a challenge over at trimcraft to use lace/ribbon.

The card i covered with distress inks using my new ink blender tool that i won, then added some art papers from a block i bought when i 1st started crafting (knew they would come in handy one day), couple of brads and finally my lacey ribbon,. I love vintage but never quite sure where to start but i must say i am quite pleased with this.

Challenges suitable for this bookmark are
