Bounce! Card with a bookmark

Last Friday Paige set a fresh challenge on the Create Blog (formerly CARDS blog) to make a card with a pocket.  I immediately got to work and created a card incorporating a bookmark into the front.
Supplies: WOF digital image - spider henry, wordart from create with TLC, 
Bazzill dotted swiss cardstock in olive green and blue, Copics Blue B24, 
Orange E08 and Olive Green YG95

I decided to use a Whiff of Joy image I got as a freebie - "Spider Henry" a while ago and pulled out some copics and set to work!.  Pop over to Whiff of Joy - I think Spider Henry may still be there!!.  I paired him with Paulette's wonderful Word Art from Create with TLC

I stitched some acetate onto some dotted swiss cardstock, layered it on top and machine stitched blue dotted cardstock and added co-ordinating ribbon to the top.  (After I took the photo I added two small glass beads to the ends of the ribbon for weight - but I'm afraid I didn't retake the photo!).

Imagine my delight to see my card feature on the CREATE blog last night...woohooo! Doing the happy dance.  Thanks so much for stopping by and feel free to leave me a comment so I know that you stopped by.  I will try to get back to visit everyone's blog over the weekend.  Happy Friday!
