Let's Play Bingo!

It's time for another challenge at Aud Sentiments.   We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and the challenge is BINGO.

I made two cards for this challenge.  For my first card, I used the first column (3D item, Ribbon and the word "Merry")
I used white flower soft for santa's hat and coat trip and tan fun flock for Rudolph's antlers.

For my second card I used the the diagonal column of (Bling, Ribbon and Snow)

This adorable elf reminded me of Buddy from the movie, Elf.  I think this is what he would look like as he traveled through the seven layers of the candy cane forest and the sea of swirly twirly gum drops.  I used a snow writer and extreme glitter paint for my bling on this card as well as diamond dust on the gum drops.

I hope that you join us in the challenge.  Simply create a project using the Bingo grid and link up it up to the challenge blog for your chance to win a gift certificate from The Paper Shelter.
