BINGO: Die cut, Lace & Embossing
Wow, fast and easy!  I can see why card makers could have an affinity for these pre-colored images!  When you are needing to crank out some cards in a hurry and don't have the time or inclination to spend hours coloring [as much as I love that]... these images from Heather at My Artistic Adventure are unique, colorful & versatile!
Heather provided each of the Aud Sentiments' DT with a collage sheet of images to use.  I chose "Primitive Folk Art Valentine Clown Bingo Card" for the current BINGO Challenge.  In addition to My Artistic Adventure, Add a Little Dazzle is also sponsoring  - so there will be prizes for two winners this go around.  You have got to see the creative projects the DT have on display - and while you are there, you can add up to 5 entries.  Here is the BINGO card to play - you have till March 10 - give it a go!

Here is a close up that shows the dry embossing from a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing - I used the narrow strip folder and laid it in the middle between the lace.  The die cut was used for the sentiment and it's mat.

Card #1

Just for fun, I whipped out another card using a larger image from the collage sheet: I matted it in black, added a red ribbon and three bingo pieces diagonally - set it at an angle on the base card... voila - I now have TWO birthday cards!  Yea!
