No Monkeying around

So this next project was inspired by my little monkey. We read stories each day and I always seem to lose the page we are on. However, the dilemma is that my little one likes to pick up her books and eat them/chew on them so an ordinary bookmark wouldn't work. I decided to create a bookmark that is sandwiched between two pieces of acetate. It has a ribbon that she can play with but the rest is protected. I used another one of Jennifer Nilsson's adorable images Mikey the trapeze monkey.
Supplies used:
Doodle Garden Mikey the trapeze monkey image
copic markers
Kaisercraft Animal party paper
Spellbinders pinking circles large
Acetate and ribbon from my stash

I am entering this bookmark into the following challenges:
