Shining the Light "Bookmark" Challenge

Happy Thursday, everyone! This week's Shining the Light Challenge on the Our Daily Bread designs blog is to create a bookmark. I made a ribbon bookmark with some May Arts Crocheted Lace and Satin Trim (yummy!) plus some SU Pink Pirouette cardstock to match. The butterflies and scripture are from the "Faith" set by Our Daily Bread designs. These were stamped on Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities, stenciled with Pink Pirouette (The Ways To Use It Challenge at Splitcoast is stenciling, BTW), then matted with Spellbinders Lacey Circles. To hide the ribbon, I cut two of each Lacey Circle to "sandwich" the ribbon inside.....I used Scor-tape to adhere the layers so that they wouldn't come apart. A little tip if you'd like to try one of these.....use one layer of flat ribbon unless you want the ends to be a bit "lumpy"! :) I am also entering this in the Papertake Weekly Challenge, which is "Anything Goes" this week...yay!!
