season's greetings

Well over at the Fussy and Fancy challenge blog, the current challenge is a bingo board. I kind of tried to incorporate everything..... but did not manage the stitching.....

I used Justrite stamps for this and the paper is DCWV texture pad. The poinsettias are spellbinders dies.
I stamped holly background in versamark on lavender paper and embossed in white detail powder. This stamp has swirls in it. I matted and layered and attached to A5 base card.

I added another strip of paper to bottom of card after attaching some ribbon and lace to it. I cut several layers of lavender felt and made 3 flowers. I added some frantage to the centres and a pearl in the centre. I sat flowers on some ribbon. I added some flourishes or swirls either end.

For the sentiment (message) I stamped in versamark on lavender card and embossed in white. I cut it banner style and matted on white and tucked it under the poinsttias. i added a gem (strass) at one end.

And voila' the finished card. 

As always I hope you like my offering, Theresa xx
