Swinging Bookmark

Morning all. I saw one of these adorable corner bookmarks a while ago and thought it would be great back to school gift for my DD who starts Grade 1 this year. She loves to get "chapter" books at the Library even though I end up reading them out loud to her. They still have too many words for her to read on her own.
I was thinking of reading quotes and "swing into reading" came to mind which immediately reminded me of swinging Agent Cupcake Descending by Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I later altered the quote to read "Swing into Adventure with a good book!"

Now truth be told, I don't always plan my challenge submission while I am making my card, BUT I decided to be true to my word and ALL of the listed challenges dictated the making of this card.
Splitcoaststampers - CC335 (although I admitted the Kraft - didn't work with my DP, IMO)
Amber's Crafts and Stuff - Challenge #22 Back to School (for my daughter)
Cupcake Kraft Challenges - Cupcake 154 Sew Mad (I was going to machine sew, but forgot before gluing down my first piece of DP so went with the doodle stitch)
Scrap-Creations - Bingo (Digi Image - Die Cut/Punch - Flowers)

I used this tutorial to make the corner bookmark.
