Bingo

The challenge this week at Our Creative Corner is to create a paper crafted item using 'a bingo card' and the color green. This seems like a perfect opportunity to make another masculine card for my 'men's' basket.


This card reminds me of one of those 'seek and find' pictures. Lots of ephemera on this card. There's an old bingo card;  sheet music;  music notes;  brown button;  Fleur de lis;  'made with love' heart lock;  'Whimsey' stamped 'live' ticket;  3 black pearls;  twine;  a gold filigree button;  a gold 'love' charm;  a computer generated verse;  a 'Happy Birthday' (Hero Art)s;  and a 'Whimsy' stamped 'cherish' ticket.  Most of these elements were distressed with a Tim Holtz distressing tool and Vintage Photo ink was applied with a piece cut 'n dry.  The background was stamped in white (stamped off on scrap paper first) with a Prima postcard stamp and  in black with a Penny Black music notes stamp. Did you find everything?  :-) Sorry I didn't supply a 'check list'!   lol

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
