New challenge - Fussy & Fancy - Shabby Bingo Fun

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have all had a great week and yay, it’s Friday; I am off to the Making It craft show tomorrow, which is very exciting!

A warm welcome to my new followers, thank you so much for following me.

It’s not my turn to post, but today I am joining in with the lovely team A ladies as we have a new challenge starting today at Fussy and Fancy. The wonderful Judy is hosting this challenge and she has chosen ‘Shabby Bingo Fun’.

The requirements are simple.
1.  Go for either one full line (that is using items selected vertical, horizontal or diagonally) or better still go for full house.  The chart is made it so that full house will be quite easy and enjoyable to do.

Those entrants who go for full house are asked to leave a comment on the post on Judy's blog at here telling her you have gone for full house.  She will then pop the names from the full house comments on her Blog into a hat and the lucky winner will win a little bit of something which she will donate.

2.  Each entrant is asked to tell us what line they have gone for, and what they have used to qualify please.  

3.  Most of all just have fun and let your creativity run away with you.  

This is the card I made for the challenge using an adorable image from a Candibean stamp called Izzy's Stroll. I have coloured her using DI reinkers.

I have gone for a full house so here is what I've used:

Fussy and Fancy - My cards are always Fussy and Fancy
Distressing - I have distressed the edges of the papers
Die Cuts-  I've used butterflies, tag, tassels and border dies
Sparking Mist - There is glitter in the bottle
Old - The flowers which have had Structure paste painted on, and most of my dies are old
New - The tassels die and lace flower is new
Frills/Lace - I had added some gorgeous lace
Pearls - There is a string of pearl flowers down the left hand side and some in the centre of the butterfly.
Dreamy - I've used dreamy pastel papers and colours
Texture - I have painted on Structure Paste around the outside of the image and placed Cheesecloth under the image and the border dies are embossed.
Romantic - I have placed a silver heart charm at the base of the flowers.
A Pair - I've used two bows.
Vintage/Cute - The image is cute.
Ribbon/Bows -  I have added two.
Shaped or Square - It is a shaped card.
Anything Goes - speaks for itself
