Simon Says Challenge - Bingo !

Welcome to another Simon Says Challenge. This week we have a really interesting challenge for you, we are having a game of bingo !

If you hop over to the challenge blog, all the details of the challenge can be found there !

There is a fantastic prize of a $50 shopping spree for the lucky winner too in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

Here is the bingo card we are using for this challenge

The line I chose for my card was punch/die cuts, embossing and ribbon

The DP's are BasicGrey Pyrus. I just love the warm, rich colours of these gorgeous papers.

The image is by Lili of the Valley and Simon Says Stamp has sets of these stamps in store. This image is taken from the set "Boy Oh Boy". I stamped the image in brown ink and then heat embossed it. I thought it would make a change from using black ink and the brown ink I had would have run with my ProMarkers so heat embossing the image with clear embossing powder stopped it from running when I coloured it (good tip there for anyone who didn't know this or had forgotten !).

The image has been cut with nestabilities lacey circles.

I also decorated the inside of my card too which I like to do as its using up my scraps which I just otherwise throw into a box which is already overflowing all over the floor !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week.

I am also going to enter my card into the following challenges :
