The quote reads:

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
~ William Wordsworth

It is printed on white, recycled, card stock, the edges hand-torn and tipped in olive green ink. It is layered onto marine blue card stock and comes with a gift attached in the form of a book thong.

A Tibetan silver star charm with a spiral in the middle dangles from one end as the focal point. Continuing with the spiral theme is a blue-green, Czech glass spiral bead on the other end. The remaining green and blue beads consist of sodalite grass turquoise and Czech glass. The beads are strung on black, waxed cord, doubly secured with crimp beads on the ends and then hand-knotted. The bookmark will fit books up to 9.5" long, the entire piece measuring about 12-13". The finished size of the card is 4.5" x 6".

PLEASE NOTE: Because of the beadwork a padded envelope should be used if you intend to mail this card to a loved one.

All of my cards have a label attached to the back, indicating that my proceeds from your purchase will be donated to non-profit organizations that benefit under-served children, or to those who face unfair challenges. (Please see my Shop Profile page at http://www.etsy.com/people/TheMusesCall for more details).

The cards are blank inside and come with a recycled white or ivory envelope. I insert them in a cellophane sleeve to protect them during shipment...and they are shipped to you in a padded envelope for extra care.
