ODBDSLC64 - Ribbon Bookmarks

(For my JUGs post scroll down or click here.)

Hey everyone... time for a new challenge from ODBD.  This week the challenge for ODBDSLC64 is to make a ribbon bookmark.  As I was deciding what ribbon I would use I thought I would combine the challenge with the current color challenge over at CR84FN.  The colors this week are pink, green and a neutral.  For my neutral I decided to use cream.



For my bookmark I decided to use some really pretty pleated pink ribbon from May Arts.  I cut a piece of the ribbon about 20" long and then layered on top of it a piece of cream crocheted ribbon.  Both ends were then cut to form the "fishtail" ends.  I die cut two scalloped circles using the 4th largest Spellbinders Small Scalloped circle die.  These pieces were adhered to one end of  the ribbon as shown.  I stamped the image from the ODBD set "Serve the Lord" on cream cardstock with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink and then colored with Copic markers (RV00, YG03 & YG23).  The image was then die cut using the 4th largest Spellbinders small plain circle die and adhered as shown.  I diecut two smalled scalloped circles and adhered them to the other end of the ribbon as shown.  The verse from the Scripture Col. 7 on cream cardstock using SU!'s Pear Pizzazz and then diecut that with the corresponding plain circle die.  I adhered that as shown, added the little rose and I was done.

Thanks for taking a peek...  I hope you will play along with the challenge.  You don't need ODBD stamps to participate, but if you wish to be considered for the "Shining the Light" award you do need to use ODBD stamps.  To make the challenge even more fun one randomly drawn participant will win a $15.00 gift certificate.    And don't forget to check out what the rest of the challenge team of Chris, Sabrina, FranPat & Silke have created!
