The Pixie Cottage Team Sketch/Fun & Games Theme

Please scroll down to see my ATS post.........Color Challenge

Hello Again!
I'm moving right along and this weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge is a team sketch and the theme is fun and games. You have a choice and can either make a card according to the team sketch, or you can design a card according to the theme or better yet....why not try both? ☺

While deciding upon an image for this weeks challenge, I thought about my Southend Girl Stamp designed by Andrea Seller. To me, the beauty of the Southend Girl stamps is timeless and will always be in style. The inspiration for using bingo mini cards as an embellishment was found here on Deb Neerman's blog. The idea captivated me and I thank Deb for the inspiration!

My best friend loves to play bingo and I think that she would love this birthday bingo card. I trimmed the sample piece from Jenny Bowlin's mini bingo card set and matted it to the large circle die cut. After coloring in my image, I carefully trimmed her away from the card stock. Extra fine glitter was added to the wings and the lace around her ankles. For fun, I added half back pearls to the bingo cards and if you look closely, some of the cards are winners!

We would love it if you play along with this weeks challenge. You are free to use any stamp that you desire! Simply link your finished card up to The Pixie Cottage's Blog. For more Pixie Cottage DT inspiration, please click here.
