A Sassy Birthday and a Game of Bingo at the PCJ Challenge

Good Morning to you all and I'd like to say a special hello to my new followers. I feel so chuffed that you like my creations enough to follow my blog and leave me such lovely comments.

Today I have my DT card for the new challenge over at Paper Crafting Journey to show you. This fortnights' challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs who are offering the lucky winner 4 images. The theme for this challenge is 'Bingo' so just pick any row - horizontal, vertical or diagonal.

My choice was the top row - lace / gems / sentiment

We were able to pick a sponsors' image to work with and I chose 'Martini Pin Up Girl' as she looks like she is having a lot of fun and that's what birthdays are all about. I printed the image twice, coloured it with Promarkers and on the glass I used Sakura Glaze pen. Then I decoupaged it to add some depth. I also used one of my new dies before putting it in the cupboard so I am managing to keep to my resolution although I haven't managed to stick to the part about not buying any new ones!!

Here's what I used
Image - Sassy Studio Designs 'Martini Pin Up Girl'
Papers - My Minds Eye 'Lost and Found', Wild Rose Studio 'Butterfly Garden', Dovecraft 'Back to Basics III'
Dies - Memory Box 'Elegant Srollwork', Marianne Creattables LR0180 (just the centre part)
Stash - pearls, gems, teardrop charm, ribbon, lace & silver peel-off sentiment

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Live and Love Crafts challenge 'Tina's Sketch'
Inky Chicks challenge 'Mothers Day or Birthday'
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT challenge 'Pink + any other colour'
Dream Valley challenge 'Ribbon and Bling'
C.R.A.F.T. challenge 'Recipe'
Natalie and Amy's challenge 'Something Old & Something New' (new MB die and old Marianne die - my 3rd entry)
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge 'Anything Goes (my 2nd entry)
Creative Card Crew challenge 'Birthday' (my 2nd entry)
Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)

Another fantastic card! I am loving these papers you are using, and these two dies. I have recently been seeing dies from Marianne Creatables. I really need to check to see if they work in the Grand Calibur. They are pretty cute!

Thanks so much for submitting another great card at Creative Card Crew and dropping by my blog :)

Fantastic fun card, love your layout also. Now resolutions like these are meant to be broken. If you find willpower against dies bottle it and you will make a fortune. xx Flor
