Tammy Challenge# 21: ADFD Bingo


I know it has been a little while since my last post, but I'm recovering from surgery.  I just popped in quickly to post my card for this week's Tammy's Scrapin Corner challenge. I have a funny story to tell before I get into the challenge deets.  I am sequestered to my mom's house until I get the clearance from the doctor to go home.  I am supposed to be relaxing and healing, which I am sorta.  Today I was restless and it is a gorgeous 98 degrees here, so I wanted to go outside.  I really needed to go to my house and get some things (my laptop).  My sister and I waited for my mom to take a nap and we snuck out to go to my house.    Well, that was my adventure for today. lol

The challenge this week is a BINGO challenge and our sponsor is A Day for Daisy.  As a ADFD alumni, I was truly excited about working with these gorgeous images again.  I chose to use "Poppy in my hair" and the bingo squares that I am using are "flower, ribbon and free space."

Here's my creation...

Poppy in my hair
I started this card out with a 6 x6 cardstock base using cardstock and dp from CTMH.  I had this paper and cardstock stashed away and when I was cleaning I discovered it.  I was so happy and decided to use it for this lovely image.  I layered on tons of paper and cardstock and even added in some chocolate cardstock because I thought this color would compliment the other colors well.  I layered the cardstock randomly for a different look and matted the image on the chocolate cardstock.  I colored the image using Copics markers.  I added flowers from Wild Orchids and finished the card off with ribbon from Michaels and a sentiment that I created.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
