Holiday Bingo...

"Wonder Christmas Pixie" provided by A Day For Daisies

Aud Sentiments' Thursday challenge is a "Holiday Bingo" using this Bingo Card:
I used the middle row for my DT contribution - including a Die cut, a Digi & Bling.  My sentiment [a mandatory element for all our challenges!] is front and center on the inside pop-up.  The card base is from an SU die-cut - the rounded corners on the front fit into slits on the back of the fold creating a closure mechanism.  The interior pop-up was also an SU die-cut.  The designer papers I believe are also SU.  Ruby red bling was added to the points of the gold snowflake & the grosgrain ribbon & double bow on the top are all from stash.

The inside sports a MS snowflake border punch and a Sissix Die Cut of the trees.  The trees were distressed just a tich with Distress Ink. Liquid Pearl applied to the corner of the message panel to mimic the berries on the background paper.  Finally a single Ruby bling was added to the sentiment panel.
There are some amazing projects by the DT - I encourage you to check out their samples with the ADFD images!  You have up to five entries for a chance at a prize - you can link up at Aud Sentiments!

I am apologetic to the two challenge sites that clearly say in their rules only 10 or 13 other challenges... I got soooo carried away this time in a Christmas frenzy.  I have marked the ones for which I am not eligible!

  9. Hello Ginny, my friend! At last, I am able to drop by your site. I've been wanting to but time is such a luxury for me. Anyway as always, I am so very grateful for not getting tired of visiting my Blog and leaving me such personalized message and comments. I appreciate your encouragement and those wonderful scrutiny of my projects...LOL! You never fail to make me smile. Let me just tell you that this card of yours is terrific...I love the colors and the dies as well as your sweet coloring of the image. My favorite is the pop-up message inside...You know, I did one pop-up card in my years of cardmaking and been wanting to do more. But it's very time consuming considering I will have to decorate the outside and the entire inside when making such. But you inspired me to hopefully give it another try one of these days. Have a wonderful weekend. God bless, till later!

    Hugs always,
    JO ANN
