"Just Us Girls" Challenge #35

This weeks challenge at "Just Us Girls" Challenge is dry embossing so I really wanted to join in with this one as I have just purchased some Tim Holtz texture fade embossing folders and it was a good chance to use them.I really like the embossed Bingo Card so decided to use that on my card.

After embossing I swiped Antique Linen distress ink all over the bingo card.The papers I used are  G.C.D. Melody Ross Homespun Chic.I took the sewing pattern paper and cut one of the ladies out and used the rest to cover the card base. I then choose the small floral print and small square paper and cut two rectangles to go behind the bingo card,all the paper was inked with antique linen..
I sewed the two pieces of PP to the sewing pattern paper and zigzag stitched it to the card.I glued down the bingo card and attached some lace across the bottom edge,then put the lady down the right side of card.I made the flower using the three larger sizes of the Cuttlebug flower#1,I cut out two of each of the sizes and inked the edges,Stack them together and put a brad through the centre and start scrunching them ,leaving the bottom one flat,then open them out to get a flower shape.

Lastly I added some buttons,a ticket,pearls and stamped a '4 you' on a punched mini tag.
Back soon.
