Southern Girls Challenge - Bingo!


Not my teams week this week over at Southern Girls, but I couldn't resist doing a card :-D  This week is a Bingo Challenge, and you can pick to go up and down, left to right or diagonally - but check the challenge blog for the full details!  I really don't want to be responsible if I don't explain it properly!!

I love the Paper Shelter images who are one of this fortnights sponsors, they are fabulous to colour, but I decided to use Victorian Morticia to make a Christmas Card, going across the middle line of the bingo board - Die Cuts, Gems and Ribbon (and yes I know my papers have glitter on them, but it's on there already, I didn't add it, so I have not counted glitter as one of my items!!)

I used both my MME Lost and Found Christmas pad and the 12x12 papers from the same range to create my card, and I noticed an off cut had a perfect image so I die cut a tag and shaped the paper to fit - I've tucked it away though :-D.  Unusually for me there is very little matting of the paper, but I distressed the edges of the papers with some Antique Linen Distress Ink.

This is quite a busy card, but I think the strong image can take it!

There's a gem in the centre of her necklace and on the pin heads, and more in the corners of the card.  I guess you can't help but notice the big ribbon!
