The One Stop Craft Challenge #164 Bingo-DT card

Hey, there, how's it going? It has been a while since my last post! I hope that everyone had a great Holday! I am going to try to get into my craft room more (after I clean it up) and start making cards again! It is time for another One Stop Craft Challenge! The challenge for this week is to play a game of Bingo. We are sponsored by The Doodle Pantry, The Crimson Cloud and The One Stop Craft Shop. Here is the Bingo board.

Doodle Bug Pantry gave the design team some images to work with so I have used one of their beautiful digital images. The elements that I have used for this card is Embossing, Paper Piecing and Charms/Pins. Here is my card:
I printed the image on gold, green, blue and blue paper. I cut out each leaf and flower and glued it onto the blue panel. The paper is Printworks. I embossed the red and yellow panels with the Cuttlebug. I added a butterfly charm and made a flower with heart puches and the border punch is Martha Stewart. Go to The One Stop Craft Challenge and check out the projects that the Design Team have created and play Bingo with us!
I am also entering this card in the following Challenges.

My last Christmas card

I have made about 20 of these tonight. I went simple so that I could make a lot, fast! I masked off the outside of the white card and sponged green ink in the middle. I then stamped the winter cabin scene by Inkadinkado. The Merry Christmas is by Verve and the saying on the inside is Stampin Up. I stamped the scene on the envelope also. I added glitter for the snow.  I am entering this in the CASual Friday Challenge #32  make an envelope to match your card. Thanks for stopping by!

I haven't created any cards lately! I had my tooth pulled Friday and I didn't feel very well yesterday. I am going Christmas shopping today so I don't know if I will get one done today or not! Is anyone else having trouble with the new blogger template? I loved my background but I deleted it and you can't edit the old templates:( I have been trying so please excuse my ugly looking blog until I get it fixed! Hope you are having a great weekend!
