Flower Pot Card and Bookmark

These cards have been very popular on card sites for months. I've been wanting to do one and the perfect opportunity came up. This was made for my godmother, Betty's, birthday.

Typically the flowers are more attached to the insert than the 'pot' but I did the opposite and made a skinny insert. It serves as a bookmark to go with the books we gave her as a birthday present. I chose books I'd read and knew she would enjoy: A Nicolas Sparks novel and Blessings by Anna Quindlin.

Happy Birthday, Betty! Hope you enjoy many, many more!

Ingredients (all by Stampin' Up! except a couple of buttons and the ribbon): Petal Pizzazz stamp set, greeting from Fifth Avenue Floral
Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla
Ink: Crushed Curry, Riding Hood Red, Really Rust, Old Olive, Soft Suede for distressing
Button: Large red is Riding Hood Red from Stampin' Up!
Other buttons and ribbon from fabric stores
