I am so excited - after a bit more research into 'blog challenges' I have made my very first entry. I spent some time yesterday visiting friends blogs and chose a challenge to participate in - I hope I got it right. Here is my work for the 'Stamping for the Weekend Bingo challenge' - I picked 'Pink, Flowers and Lace' ...
I used another of my 8x8” scalloped edge card blanks and matted pink flowered paper, together with a smaller piece of pink wording paper from my stash. The bingo card was stamped onto plain pink paper and torn around edges (I thought this was a quirky addition to the layering, as the challenge is called ‘Bingo’). It also has a piece of white lace attached to the left hand side. The stamp is ‘With Love’ from the Fizzy Moon range and is coloured with promarkers (I picked this image because of the flowers!). It’s mounted onto a large
die-cut from white pearlescent cardstock with my nestabilities. The border at the bottom has three layers –
white lace, a white pearlescent
nestabilities border (Parisian Accents) and a piece of pink polka dot ribbon. I made the little bunting sentiment from
scraps of pink paper mounted onto
cardstock, threaded it onto very pale
pink ribbon and secured it with two pink
brads. The card is decorated with a
variety of flowers from my stash (some of which have white pearl accents in the centres and pearl stamen accents from Wild Orchid Crafts),
together with three pink pearl
hearts, a pink die-cut corner
(Parisian Accents) and a small metal ‘made with love’ heart embellishment which
hangs from the border behind the flowers.
I am also entering this card for the
Wild Orchid Crafts - White + 1 challenge.
Hope you like it, Jx
