The Shabby Tea room challenged everyone to a game of Bingo this week;

use this inspiration board as a starting point for your design, please choose any THREE IN A ROW embellishments to create a card or project

I chose the bottom row of Punches/Die Cuts, Embossing and Ribbon although as it turned out, I could have also called "House" (or should that be "Line"?) for the middle vertical row too with this card;

I used;
A hybrid of a Graphics Fairy rose and Antique Image script image to create backing paper
Ribbon Girl Ribbon, Lace and Twine and stick pins
XCut Mavis (such a cool name) border die to cut and dry emboss
Nestabilities dies to cut net curtain and jute
Kraft and Bazzil cardstock
Printed sentiment - font is Mom's Typewriter from Dafont
Inking and hand stitching
