BINGO! The Shabby Tea Room Weekly Challenge

Hello everyone! 

Today I am pleased to bring you an elegant card designed for The Shabby Tea Room's "BINGO!" challenge.

This was one of the most fun challenges ever!  Using the BINGO! board, you get to choose any three embellishments in a row to create a project.  If you use all the embellishments listed on the card, you will be entered into a special drawing.  

Here is the fun BINGO! board.

I used die cuts, dry embossing and ribbon.  I chose a timeless toile pattern as the base of my card.  I love to use stripes and they look beautiful on this card.  I just received my new Clear Art Stamps - Cupcake Party from Simon Says Stamp.  I used the the butterfly and "hello" sentiment designs from the stamp set to design the card.  The butterfly was stamped on ivory cardstock and inked with Black Soot and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.
Beaded Circles from Spellbinders is one of my favorite die sets.  After die cutting my shapes, I embossed them using an embossing mat.  I used my Pearl Pen in Lilac to adorn the embossed beaded trim of the circle.  The circle and butterfly were mounted on the card using foam squares.  I finished my design with scrunched seam binding from the Memrie Mare on Etsy.  

Here are the rules for the challenge:

... using the inspiration board as a starting point for your design, please choose any THREE IN A ROW embellishments to create a card or project with this week! For example, you may decide to use brads, buttons and die cuts on your card ... OR you may decide to use buttons, flowers and glitter on your project! Basically, a wild card week!

BONUS ... anyone using all 9 embellishment choices will go into a random drawing for 5 yards of Shabby Vintage Seam Binding from the Simple Treasures Etsy Shop!  Please visit The Shabby Tea Room for more details.

Oh my shabby goodness, Robin -- STUNNING! I adore the pink, black and cream color palette and the toile DSP is scrumptious (whose is that?). Thanks so much, sweetie, for sharing your amazing talents with us in the Tea Room this week :) So looking forward to your GDT with the Shabby Girls!
