Golden wedding bookatrix card

I made this card for my Parents to give to my Uncle and Aunt, I still need to make mine.

I am going to put it in the This Thursday challenge too as this week is bling!

It is a bookatrix, with layers of embossed card, pearlescent card and patterned vellum that I stamped and heat embossed (not very well). I mounted it on gold mirri card added different gold ribbons and brads and a bow, and finished it with some gems.

This is only the second Bookatrix card I have ever made despite having the board for years but it takes time and is elaborate!

I don't know what to do with the book marker, it is just propped up for now but do I attach it there, leave it loose, or attach it in the centre? Or leave it out all together? Any help appreciated.

I have made a box in gold card inside out so the gold is inside and I can decorate the top. That isn't finished yet, well the bottom half is. I have punched the vellum and the corners of the box lid with the puzzle punch.

I had another comment from Deguline that I thought I had published but it has vanished so I am sorry if I pressed reject by mistake. Thanks for the comment.
