Saturated Canary Bookmark

A few weeks ago we lost power. My cell phone was nearly dead and I didn't want to drain the last of the battery listening to an audio book. I'd just gotten a paperback from my mother and it was an opportune time to read it. For the life of me I couldn't find a bookmark! The power came back on about six hours later but the landline, cable, and internet were off for 24 hours. I'd finished the book by the time everything was back to normal but I need to have a bookmark on hand for future use. 

I colored up this cute Saturated Canary image with Copic markers to make one. Using a Dienamics tag, an eyelet and ribbon it was an easy task. I highlighted the image with Glossy Accents, a Spica glitter pen and colored "pearl" earrings. I would have loved to add flowers and bling, but for a bookmark it's just not practical. Try as I might I couldn't find a stamp, either actual or digital, that caught my fancy. I decided instead to use the Frantic Stamper Inc Mattie Thin Lowercase Alphabet and some red foil paper for a simple "read."
