bingo love

Today at Crafts 4 Eternity we have my favourite theme ... vintage, together with the sketch, which is nice and  simple, but ...

OMG! I really struggled with this one. We are now in week 2 of lost crafty mojo and it is hell!!! LOL!! I haven't even been blog hopping, because I haven't been able to bear to see you all enjoying yourselves getting inky. Anyway, I think salvation is now at hand, now that Tim has started his 12 tags and its reawakening my mojo.

So here is my piece (which is nothing to do with Tim's tags by the way).

I've used vintage colours and teamed it with bright colours, because they did use bright colours in days gone by, it's just that they've faded with time.

The background paper is Basic Grey ~ Wisteria. I've scuffed up the edges and embossed with gold embossing powder and then sat it onto some bright pink bazzill.

The bingo card is a Glitz Design ~ Love Nest Whatnot, which I sprayed with glimmer mist and scuffed and embossed the edges. 

I've added a scalloped edge with a Magnolia ~ Doo Hickey die which I then embossed.

I then made a flower with a lace doiley a Magnolia ~ Doo Hickey flower die, a pink velvet leaf and then I added a vintage button from my button stash.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:
'vintage': My Time To Craft.
'2 circles, 2 squares, plus buttons & bling': Stampin' For The Weekend.
'children': By the Cute & Girly.

OK, now I am off to finish Tim's Day 1 tag which I started last night. This one is taking forever, there is so much to it!! Hopefully I will be able to post it tomorrow when it's done.

Thanks for looking.
