Fairy Bingo

I just love Stitchbear digital stamps and have recently been checking out their weekly challenge blog, .  Having never entered a challenge before (never seem to have the time) this one caught my attention and as I have today off work I thought I would give it a go <g>.  I set myself the challenge of trying to use all nine sections, just for the fun of it.

This weeks challenge is called 'Bingo' and each entry had to contain a line / full house of the items given.
  1. Ribbon
  2. Embossing
  3. Buttons
  4. Sticker
  5. Digi
  6. Bling
  7. Sentiment
  8. Lace
  9. Die-cut
For my entry:-
  1. Ribbon - I added a ribbon bow
  2. Embossing - I created a swirly background .svg which I then embossed onto 120gms white paper using my Black Cat
  3. Button - this was fun, hardly any buttons in my house but I managed to find three white shirt buttons which I then coloured with Promarkers
  4. Sticker - Two line stickers have been used to edge the white topper layer and also I created the Thinking of You sticker by designing it, saving as a .svg and then cutting it out of vinyl.  This was also coloured with Promarkers.
  5. Digi - I was busy colouring in this digi, 'Ivy Fairy' from Delicious Doodles last night while cheking out the One Stitch At A Time Challenge so it had to be this digi I used.
  6. Bling - to achieve this setion I heat fixed 6 turquoise gems around the fairy wings and also dotted the 'i's' on the Thinking of You text with Stickles
  7. Sentiment - just something I thought up which seemed to work so well with the digi
  8. Lace - white lace, coloured with Promarkers
  9. Die-Cut - there are two in this card, the first is the Thinking of You text which I created and the second is the top wing of the fairy which once printed and cut was adhered to the card with foam tape, just to give a bit of depth.
There, I think that pretty much sums up the why and how of this card.  Now for the outcome :)

Having had a look at other folks entries I see many enter the same card for several different challenges.  Shall I give it a go <g>

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:-
  1. Digi Galore - For a Friend
  2. Two Sisters Challenge - Things With Wings
  3. Love to Create - Anything Goes
  4. Divas By Design - Challenge 54 fairies and fantasy
  5. OSAAT - Challenge #132...Bingo
