Hi there!

Today the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog is playing BINGO! 
We would love to have you come by and play:)

Here is the bingo card:

Draw a straight line in any direction, and use those 3 elements on your project this week. I had fun with this challenge :)

My bingo line goes through DOILY, FLOWERS, LACE:
After I posted the photo, I'm thinking that this card could have used some stitching around the edges...but I was too busy this week to get back into my craft room to add it. (Summer activities are gearing up and I don't have a lot of spare time to craft.)  So now this looks unfinished to me. Oh well, sometimes I have to remind myself that it's just a card and the recipient really won't care!  (I found a sign on Pinterest that says "Done is better than perfect", I think I need to make one for my wall.)

Here's a close up of the flower cluster, they are just simple rolled paper roses sitting on top of crochet lace flowers:

Stop by H2H to see what the other DT gals did with their bingo cards. Wanna play too?  Pick a bingo in a straight line in any direction on the card above, and create something with those 3 elements on it using CTMH products.  Post it on your blog and link it up at H2H so we can all pop by for a peek. Each entry has a chance to win one of the prizes donated by our generous sponsors, and we'll be picking our faves for the Top 10 at the end of the month.

Not only did I get to play bingo, but I got to finally use this stamp set to make a card for the Moxie Fab World "I'm Sew Excited" challenge.  (I love it when I can get one card to fit more than one challenge:)  But I still think I should have added some stitching...

Thanks for stopping by today!

  7. Lorrinda, I've been eyeing this stamp set. Now I must get it. Your card is amazing. I couldn't picture a card with flowers, lace and a doily but you gave me a vision. Your flowers are just gorgeous.

  12. Love the vintage look of your card. Doilies can add so much to a card and I love how you added them under your beautiful flowers. Good luck on the MIM challenge.


  13. Hi Mz. Lorrinda,
    Thank you for you comment, you are so kind to me. My mom has been staying with me while Jim is gone at the fires in Texas, and she just saw your card. She LOVED it! My mom is 81 years old and she was a seamstress all her life. She wanted me to tell you that your card is simply beautiful!!! I think it's beautiful too!!!

  14. Hello Lorrinda, your card is lovely as it is but I can quite see why you thought of stitching as a finishing touch. I love the dressmaking theme and the paper roses are terrific. In case you are wondering, I popped over from the MIM site. Elizabeth

  15. OH my what a sweet card, but hey those flowers are just stunning.

    Thanks for sharing your creation with Make It Monday.

  16. Hi Lorrinda

    Wow, I love this, such a pretty card. Love the sewing theme, stitching around the edges would have been a perfect touch but card looks just gorgeous without it.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.
