Bikkie with Cookie

The challenge this week at The Stamping Bazaar Blog is to make a card or project using Lace & Ribbons! I chose to feature The Stamping Bazaar's Bikkie with Cookie, illustrated by Marina Neira, and used a soft color pallet. It's indented to be used as a baby card so I colored Bikkie yellow for a neutral gender.

The lace is easily spotted and for the ribbon I used a thin white organdy ribbon behind the flowers and curled the ends. I also added two star-shaped hat pins and in the opposite corner two silver spacers, each with an added Dew Drop.

Did you know? The North Stoke Church, in the English county of West Sussex, has architectural features and internal fittings spanning hundreds of years, including some very old stained glass and wall paintings. In late 2007, two amateur archaeologists at the University of Sussex unexpectedly came across an ancient document giving the dedication of the church, which had been unknown since the English Reformation or before. They found a piece of vellum stuck to the back of one which was a letter written by the Bishop of Chichester Stephen Bersted to King Edward I in 1275, indicating that the church was dedicated to Mary the Virgin. Accordingly, a rededication ceremony was held at the now redundant church on 8 December 2007, at which it was officially renamed from North Stoke Church to St Mary the Virgin Church.
