Eyes Down At The Craft-Room

It's time for another Craft-Room Challenge and it's the lovely Mervi's turn to choose the theme and she wants you all to play bingo.

This is what she has to say about the challenge.
Are you ready for the new theme, let's play bingo! Just pick your favourite three, make an entry and let us know what your choices are! Otherwise you can create whatever your style is.

Here's the bingo grid or Tic Tac Toe's!

Our sponsor is Sweet Poppy Stencils, who is offering the winner a Hollyhock stencil, pot of Stencil Dimensions Glossy White Paste, and a paste spreader.

We are looking for Guest Designers - if you would like to join us as Guest Designer, just put GD after your name when entering our challenge.

For my DT piece I have made a card and it fits two rows of the bingo grid, they are Blue, Flower, Lace or Blue, Rubber Stamping or Butterfly - I stamped the butterfly on the background but it doesn't show up very well.

I covered a square card blank with blue patterned paper and stamped some butterflies then I adhered some lace. I cut a square piece of blue corrugated card and spread some distress stickles over it, then adhered it to the card. I stamped the image onto white card and matted it onto a piece of blue card, then I put some staples in the corner and adhered it to the card. I added some gems.
The flower stamp that I used is a La Blanche stamp.

I'm entering my card in the Artful Times Let's Ribble Challenge.

We had some wonderful entries for the Embossing challenge, Suzanne will have a difficult job to pick her top three.
As usual the rest of the DT have made some fabulous samples and would love you all to take a look.
