Crafty Boots Bingo

Hello lovely people!  I am happy to announce the start of another challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.  I got to decide the theme for this challenge, and I thought a bit of Bingo would be fun.  The idea is that you have to use the elements in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal row (ie Green, Stars & Ribbons or Stars, Stripes & Dots, or Green, Stripes & Lace etc.)  You can also use the elements in the 4 corners (Green, Ribbons, Yellow & Lace), or if you are feeling particularly brave, try a 'full card' by using all the elements.

As this week is my Mom's Birthday, my first card is the birthday card I made for her.

I designed this card in Serif's Craft Artist Professional using various digi kits.  The printed / designed layer is on top of a purple glittered acetate, and the whole card is finished off with a bow made from blue organza ribbon.  The BINGO elements I used for this card are Yellow, Stripes and Ribbons.

My next card uses the BINGO elements Green, Stars and Ribbons. 

Again, the card was designed in Craft Artist Professional.  I used various digikit elements, and inserted the Chester Monkey digistamp (by Pollycraft).  After printing, I colored Chester with Flex Markers.  I used stickers to embellish the large star ornament, and added two tones of green organza ribbon.

I hope you like my cards (and I especially hope my Mom likes hers!)  Please check out the main blog here to see what the rest of the design team have come up with.  Also, please link up your own creations and let us know which elements you have used!

As always, comments are most appreciated.  I am so glad you took the time to visit and hope you can come back soon!

Take care,
Denise xx
