Hi To You All

This is my very first card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge, I was thrilled when I was asked to join their super talented DT team - thank you so much for having me.

So, what's this week's challenge ..... it's 'BINGO' and our very generous sponsor this week is Whiff of Joy.

Now for those of you who don't know about BINGO, it's quite simple really, you just choose a line ie; horiztontal, vertical, diagonal or all four corners and your creation has to have all those elements in it.  For example the top line going across would be "Glitter - Punches - Lace", so we want to see whatever you make with these items on it so don't forget to mention it on your blog.

So what are you waiting for?  Get you entries in over at Papertake Weekly and you could be in with a chance to win.  Don't forget to check out what the wonderful DT girlies have made to whet your appetite.

Here is the card I made going with the bottom horizontal line - "Blooms - Ribbons - Gems":

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Saturated Canary - Blanche - by Krista Smith
Digi Papers:  Scrapmatters - Winterberry - by Jennifer Labre Designs
Leaf Die:  Memory Box - Lavish Branch
Corner Die:  Joy Crafts - Cutting and Embossing - Fleur de Lys 2
Charm:  The Hobby House
Rhinestones:  The Hobby House
Ribbon and Flowers:  From My Stash

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E55 E53 E51 E50
Dress:  BV08 BV04 BV02 / T7 T6 T5 T4 T3

I have outlined the image and papers with Dusty Concord Distress Ink

I have one more picture to show you of the inside of the card:

And there you have it.

I do hope you will be able to come and join in the fun with us over at Papertake Weekly.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.
