How's About a Bookmark!

This week's Ways to Use It challenge over at SplitcoastStampers is to use BOOKMARKS.

Reading is one of my many favorite pastimes.  I think I probably have 4-5 books that I'm in the middle of as we speak.  And that's not counting Nursing School books.  The challenge today was to create a bookmark that could stand alone, either as a complete project or one that could be detached.

I picked this sweet image from A Day For Daisies' September Club Kit called Peace and Quiet.  I've had a slamming week, what with school stuff and a mini-emergency in the family, so this little sunflower is just where I want to be sitting myself right about now.

I colored Peace & Quiet with Copics and created a bookmark before creating the pocket card to hold the bookmark.  Colors are pear pizazz and blush with some Basic Grey designer papers.  Finishing touches are the pretty pink ribbon and pearl brads.  The sentiment was computer generated.

I also entered this in the Anything Goes challenge - basically, anything goes ...

Thanks for stoppin in!
