Cute Card Thursday - A stitch in time

One of my favourite themes at Cute Card Thursday this week -
A stitch in time!
Not often do I make anything without a  bit of stitching !
This is a very simple bookmark, I don't like to add 3d embellishments that would make my book bulge!  The stitching helps to add more definition without the bulk.
I used Whimsy Stamps Lil Montana  by Elisabeth Bell.
The perfect sentiment is Whimsy Stamps Spring Letter Seals by Raindrop Echo Designs.
The card and papers came from my scrap box, I always delve in there when I want to make a bookmark, I am pretty sure these ones are MME.  
We have a great prize over at Cute Card Thursday as always, this week we are sponsored by

Hope you can play along!  Thanks for dropping by!
