BINGO Challenge at SweetStamps

This week's challenge at is BINGO! We have a card for you to play along with, you can choose the technique or item in any row (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) or you can even do an X or + pattern.
Here's what I chose to do on my card:
and here it is:
The flower image was heat embossed, and I dry embossed both the cardstock (with an embossing folder) and the vellum. Finished it off with a die cut border and added some bling. Not too bad considering we've been driving all day and I only had a short amount of time to whip this up!
Here are the products I used:
445G Open Flower Bunch by SweetStamps
Tiffany Border Die by Cheery Lynn Designs
Pitt Artist Pens by Faber Castel 
pearls from my stash

Check out the SweetStamps blog for inspiration from the talented ladies on the design team. Play along with us this week and you could win a $20 shopping spree for rubber stamps at!
See ya next week when our challenge will be St. Patrick's Day!
