Shiver Me Timbers


Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Our challenge hostess for May, Barb Anders continues to bring us our challenges.

This week Barb has challenged us to Let's Play Bingo!


Use three items on your card or project--can be across, down, diagonal. Also you can use anything else to complete your design as long as your three Bingo elements are there.
Embossing - heat, dry, or embossing paste
Stitching - real or faux
Fiber - ribbon, twine, lace, etc.
Bling - gems, pearls, enamel dots
Distressing - either with ink or a tool
Text - either stamped or from a book page


For my card today I used All Dressed Up Pirate Puppy digital stamp to create a Pivot Card. I used the Katie Label Pivot Card die designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs.


For my “3 in a row” on the bingo challenge I used the striped designer paper, the sentiments and I also added some black hemp twine under the number 4 which covers fiber .


Here is a close up of the right hand side of my card.


Here is the front of my card, I added another pirate image from the digi set and some Elizabeth Craft Designs Black/Silver Glitter Dots along the bottom edge.

Here is the back of my card … love that the back also has a little interest for this type of card.
