FOSTV-Bingo challenge

 
 
Good Monday Morning....Rise and Shine! Can there be any such thing as a good Monday morning? It's hard to think of it  that way at times. I had a slow weekend, made a card or two and watched a football game on Saturday.
 
 
This week at Friends of Speedy TV we are having a Bingo challenge. That is one of my favorite kinds as you get to choose what you want to create.
 
 






 
I chose Anything But a Square, ribbon, monochromatic. I made an A2  card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2) and used blue as the monochromatic color. The stamp sets I'm using are from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co./Christmas Wreath Mini and Christmas in the Country.
 
We would love for you to join us this week in our Bingo challenge. Just create your card, come over to Speedy TV, look for the FOSTV challenge #38, and link your card. We would love to see your creations and maybe you would be the winner of this beautiful stamp set called Old Summer.
 
Recipe:
Stamps-listed above
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaMagic Aegean for sponging
Accessories-Stampin'Up! Dazzling Diamonds, Tim Holtz blending tool, glue pen, Sizzix Elegant Enhancement set (sentiment die), Cuttlebug embossing folder/snowflakes, Copics for dyeing ribbon

This is beautiful, Benzi! I love the way the light shines on the church. It reminds me of the Kinkade pictures. It was a busy weekend, here, and went by all too fast.

Beautiful card....love how the image seems to shine. Very artistic.

Angie said...

Gorgeous card!!! Love the light shining from the church!! Love the bits of glitter too! Just stunning!!!

I think one of the most exciting things about paper crafting is that we can use the same stamps, sketch or even Bingo rows and the projects still come out completely original!!!

I started my Monday last night and hit some of my tasks so I don't feel so overwhelmed today. I hope you have a great Monday!!!
