Heartfelt Wishes card for the H2H Bingo Challenge!



Good Morning! Today I'm sharing the "Heartfelt Wishes" card I created this week for the Heart to Heart Blog Bingo Challenge! This challenge was simple. Choose three items in a row (bingo or tic-tac-toe) from the bingo card (shown above) to use to inspire your creation! Can you guess which three I chose?! If you guessed doily, flowers, and lace (top row straight across), then you are correct! I'm also showing you the packaging for the 4" paper doilies I used in case you want to get some of your own to create with (I got mine from the cake decorating aisle at wal-mart, but you should be able find them at any store
with a cake-decorating section).

The standard size card I created is inspired by Wishes - Sentiment Secured (p. 78). I've used the Wings papers (X7135B) with two different stamp sets; Card Chatter - Sympathy D1476 and the b-size stamp set from the Sophia Workshop-on-the-Go kit G1019. Ink colors are Black, Olive, Vineyard Berry, and 2nd generation Vineyard Berry. I backed the paper doily with Colonial White cardstock and embellished with some lacy Colonial White ribbon and a paper button carnation. The interesting button carnation is a new thing I learned from consultant Connie Macfarlane and her FABULOUS blog "Paper Pleats and Ribbon Roses"!! Click here to visit Connie's blog for an AWESOME video tutorial that shows how to create these fun button carnations from scraps!! Connie, ALL of your paper and ribbon flowers are so beautiful and I am so inspired by you - THANK YOU for sharing your know-how and creativity with us!!
