Bingo at Papertake Weekly

Good morning everyone,

I would just like to say a 'Big Thank You' to everyone for the lovely wishes you sent me regarding my Aunty Hilda, they are very much appreciated.  One of the things I love about crafting is that most of us are really caring of other people, and your well wishes and encouragement always make me feel better, whether it's something that's happened in my life or just an encouraging comment about a card, I've never met a lot of you but feel sometimes that you are my closest friends:) xx  Sending you all big cyber hugs xx

So on to my card for today it's Tuesday so it's time for Papertake Weekly challenge and the theme for this week is 'Bingo' below is the grid and if you don't know how to play it's easy, just choose one of the lines in any direction and include them on your card.

My choice for this week is the top line

I have used this lovely stamp from LOTV called 'Handbags'  I used Tim Holtz distress inks to colour it in and sprinkled frantage around the edges, also glittered the lovely flowers and butterflies with stickles.  I also inked around the edges and even the ribbon got a swipe with the ink pad lol!! The gorgeous pearls are from Ribbon Girl as well as some of the flowers. The little gems inside the flowers were from the hobby house.  I also made a little pull out tag from the gorgeous paper.  I used one of LOTV's lovely verses Set 10.

Other items used
Paper - Antebellum LOTV (Raspberry Road Designs)
Doily Die - Cheery Lynn (Italian Flourish)
Numbers - Tim Holtz
Flowers - Ribbon Girl/Wild Orchid Crafts
Gee-SSo - Indigo Blu
Butterflies - Martha Stewart Punch
