~~~ A Gift ~~~

Well today I spent the day creating something
reversable and has 2 uses....Tag or a Bookmark.
I used a flap from an old Cabinet Card as the base.
And a Cabinet Card image on many pieces of paper
from 1865 and an old small poetry book of Longfellow
from 1894 among other pieces. Aged with Tim Holtz
Distress Inks
and a stencil brush. The reverse is of
misc. ephemera. One piece is from a poetry book
I had as a child. My friend likes antiques so I tried
to make it look as antiquey as I could. Is that a word?
