70th birthday bookmark card

I was asked to make a 70th birthday card for my friend's mum, to include a bible verse that they had chosen. I've made this card using a My Mind's Eye stack, and a couple of my favourite Sizzix dies 656560 and 656640 . To prevent the front of the card becoming overly cluttered, I decided to make the bible verse in to a bookmark by using my perforated cutter to section off a strip on the back of the card. When the card is no longer being displayed, the bookmark can be easily separated from the rest of the card and act as a nice keepsake for her to use every day. I used my Hougie board to create the embossed square on the front of the card. The writing, including the very fine sentiment, is cut with my Craft Robo using the Wendy Medium font, which I really like for the Robo as it is easy to fuse the letters together.
I'm entering this card in to the following challenges:
