A Shabby Chic Saturated Canary Bookmark

It's another Friday Free For All with a Just Because creation.
This one started because I had a Saturated Canary image I wanted to color up and their challenge is to make a bookmark so I just took the idea and ran with it.
I also had a great coupon for Michaels on Memorial Day so it was time to stock up on all those embellishments I love but don't like to pay full price for, you know the feeling? :)

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Oldie But a Goodie - Anything Goes (paper is a year old)

Bookmark Recipe:
Image - Pricilla Pie by Saturated Canary
Medium - Copic Markers and Opaque White Paint
Paper - Melissa Frances 5th Avenue
Flowers and Pearls - Recollections
Ribbons - Michaels
Word accents - K and Co
Swirl Die - Elegant Scrollwork by Memory Box

I added the Opaque White Paint to the pearls in her hair and to her ring and pendant.
I don't need the bookmark as I use my Kindle Fire for reading the majority of the time so this will be proudly on display in my craft room.
It's the last day of school here so wish me luck for the next 11 weeks of sibling rivalry (you now that is), camps, swimming, vacation, music lessons and everything else that goes with 3 children at home. Hopefully I will still have time to craft!
