ODBDSLC214 - Fall Inspiration

Here in Australia we are just a few weeks into Spring but in the northern hemisphere they are just entering Fall (or Autumn as we call it). The next Our Daily Bread Designs' challenge, ODBDSLC214, is Fall Inspiration and we have some gorgeous images to inspire your projects! 
But firstly, here is my project:

Here is the image that inspired my project:

And here are the other gorgeous images that you can choose from:

My sister in law is having a baby soon (their first). This was the tag/bookmark that I made for her baby shower that I just went to on the weekend. I was inspired by the colours in the image - yellow, green and white.

I diecut some green Bazzill textured cardstock using Our Daily Bread Designs Bookmark Dies and then diecut one of the smaller bookmarks from the same set, ODBD Bookmark Dies, from ODBD Soulful Stitches Paper Collection.

I've stamped the image from Our Daily Bread Designs Noah's Ark stamp set onto X-Press It blending card and coloured with Copic markers. I've then diecut the image with ODBD Vintage Label dies and then diecut again using ODBD Bookmark dies so that the edge will line up with the edge of the bookmark.

I've also used ODBD Pennant Row dies to create the two rows of pennants. This is one diecut, cut in half. I've stuck down the smaller half flat on the bookmark and added the letters from Our Daily Bread Designs Pennant Swag Alphabet stamp set to the larger half before adding to the tag/bookmark using foam tape.

For the back of my tag/bookmark I've diecut some white card using the same ODBD Bookmarks dies and adhered it to the back of the tag/bookmark. This makes both sides "nice" and you don't see the underside of any diecut piece. I also stamped these words by Cecil Frances Alexander:
" All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all."
from the same stamp set as the image - Our Daily Bread Designs Noah's Ark.

To finish off I've added some green ribbon and white seam binding.
