Tried out the denim technique featured on Splitcoast this morning and then in the forum, someone linked to this denim technique page ... http://ellenhutson.typepad.com/the_classroom_new/2009/06/dad-card-jeans-texture-by-debbie-olson.html ... Wow, lots of great ideas like the seam and the gel pen and the white smudging along the seam.
Another cup of coffee later and I found idea for a bookmark and knew this was perfect.

SHE got the idea from http://www.ginasmakingsandmusings.blogspot.com/2009/06/riley-bookmarks-and-reading-log.html .
Here's the card I came up with. ( remember how they say it takes a village to raise a child? Seems today it took a village to create my card ! )
