Merry Christmas Greetings

     OK, the theme today at Catch the Bug's Holiday Chaos is to use a Bingo board.  Instead of choosing a row or column (or even a diagonal), I did the entire board!  It's rare that I can manage that, but I did it today.  :-D 

     I'll show you my card and then a copy of the Bingo Board.

and here's the Bingo.

     I colored the Bugaboo Stamps image with my ProMarkers, adding a bit of silver or gold metallic inks to the bells and the snowflakes.  I decided to leave the little elves uncolored just for some contrast.

     I used an Unbranded die to cut the image, then matted it with forest green CS.  That went onto a layer of bleached and textured red CS with a strip of plaid paper between them.  I added metallic green and red ribbon along with a red ribbon bow, one of those I sew up by the dozens and toss in my stash for future use.

     In addition to the pearl on the bow, I added three gold pearls above the image.  Obviously, the image is also the sentiment.  :-D
