New Challenge At Simply Magnolia - Bingo.

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
We have a new challenge starting today at Simply Magnolia and this time it's
Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is
Crafty Ribbons. 

Here is the bingo board.

The board has rows of embellishments.
You must use items on your cards from one of these lines;
horizontal, vertical or diagonal. It must be three in a row.
If you are like me and love to add lots of embellishments to your cards you can go for a full house and use all of the embellishments on the board.

I have made a Spring time shaped card featuring Tilda With Daffodil Basket from The Little Easter Collection 2013 and I have gone for a full house.

I have die cut a Spellbinders opulent oval with Neenah cardstock and stamped Tilda With Daffodil Basket onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured the image with Prismcolor and Polychromos pencils and inked the edges of the oval with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink.
I have surrounded the image with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from
For the shaped card I have used 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frames frilly #2 fromCuttingedgecrafts. 
The pretty papers are Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics from Live & Love Crafts. 
The white doily and lovely lace are from Ebay. You can find the lace HERE. 
I have adhered white 3mm pearls onto the doily and placed some pink organza ribbon behind the lace.
I have die cut a Cheery Lynn nautical wheeler doily and inked around the edges with spun sugar distress ink adhering the doily to the centre of the card and placed some cheese cloth on top before adhering the image to the centre with double sided sticky pads.
The fence is Doohickey lovely fence. I have inked around the fence with spun sugar distress ink and used my Woodware small butterfly punch and design paper to punch out the butterfly and adhered it to the fence.
The dragonflies are Magnolia Dookickey. I inked the edges and placed three clear rhinestones down their centres.

I have made the flower with 3 2" paper hydrangea blooms and inked the edges with spun sugar distress ink placing a pink brad through the centre.
I attached a length of 2mm silver plated curb chain to a silver plated split ring and attached it to the back of the brad. I placed another split ring through the bee charm and onto the chain.
The hydrangea blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the bee charm is from The Ribbon Girl. 
I bought the chain and split rings from Ebay.

For the flower arrangement I have used blue Kort & Godt rolled roses, Kort & Godt chrysanthemums, beaded swirls and 20mm pink roses all from The Ribbon Girl. 
A 30mm ivory wild rose and 10mm white roses both from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
I placed a 5mm pink pearl to the centre of each of the rolled roses.
The wooden heart button and hemp twine are from The Ribbon Girl. 
In between the flower arrangement I have put some Cheery Lynn pine branches and some Martha Stewart woodland branches.
I inked the edges of the branches with spun sugar distress ink.

I dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen and added Ranger white liquid pearls among the daffodils.

Inside the card is decorated with the design paper and a Spellbinders opulent oval.

I hope you like my card?
