PapercraftJunkies # 6

Welcome to our last challenge of the year at PapercraftJunkies. Thank you to all who took part in Denyse's Embellish It! challenge. The standard of entries was very high and Denyse will be announcing the winners in a few days time.
There are lots of fabulous digi images in the PapercraftJunkies shop where there is a terrific sale on at the moment and even a freebie section. There have been lots of recent additions to the shop including some fantastic background scenes.
Challenge # 6 is hosted by the lovely Dawn and the theme she has chosen is "Bingo Board". That means you follow either a line across, down or diagonally to include three elements.  Or you could use everything for a full house!  You will find the board further down this post.

For my card I went down the left hand side and used Ribbon, Flowers and Buttons.

I used a paper from MCS Quintessential Country Garden and matted it onto silver mirri board. Before attaching to the 8" x 8" card blank I wrapped a turquoise ribbon around it. I also inked the edges of the blank with Distress Ink Salty Ocean.

I used the fantastic Flower Heart digi and changed the colour of the outline drawing to blue using MCS. I then coloured the flowers, vines and leaves with Promarkers and matted it onto silver mirri.
This image will look wonderful coloured with reds for Valentine's Day.

The paper flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I tied a bow with the ribbon and found some flower and heart buttons in my stash which matched the card perfectly.

Here is the board for you to play along with.

Head over to the Challenge Blog where you can see the fabulous projects our Design Team have been busy creating to hopefully inspire you for this challenge.
There are fabulous digi prizes and badges up for grabs for the lucky winners. The challenge winner will win 4 PapercraftJunkies digi images from the shop if they've used a PCJ image on their entry, otherwise, the winner can choose 3 PCJ digi images. They will also receive the code for a winners badge.
Also, 3 favourites will be chosen to receive one of the fabulous blog badges as shown in the side bar where you'll find a full breakdown of the prizes and rules too. You have until 9:59 am on December 31st 2013 to enter your crafty creations, we can't wait to see what you make.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year. We hope to see you all in 2013!
