PTW - Let's play BINGO!!!!

Hi friends!! We've made it through yet another Monday, and so it's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly! This week, we've got a fun one for you! We're going to play Bingo! So here's your Bingo board:

We are being sponosred this week by The Ribbon Girl, so if you want a chance to win a yummy prize, then pick your three in a row and show us what you've got!  Here's what I've come up with. My wonderful sis is going through a rough time right now. She just lost her dear Father-in-Law and the family is going through a really rough time. During his illness, he had some wonderful nurses and my sis asked me to make some special cards for them as a keepsake to thank them for everything they'd done. This is what I came up with. I received one of these gorgeous books from my wonderful and talented friend Cami, and I've been wanting to make one ever since. This was the perfect opportunity. Well I'll tell you, I set about it on Saturday morning and FINALLY figured out how to construct it by Saturday night. LOL! It was a lot of work to figure it out, but I've got it, and now I've just got two more to do. So anyway...without further ado, here is the book card I created for my sis to give to his nurses.

I chose the last column which are BLOOMS, FREE, and LACE.  The FREE I used was a metal embellishment (the corner). This is the front, straight on.  The butterfly is a die cut by Cheery Lynn Designs, the papers are Basic Grey matted with Bazzill cardstock, the Blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the lace is from an antique shop in Illinois, The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, and I also used a Bronze Pearl Pen on the butterfly and sentiment panel. Of course I did some machine stitching on it as well. This is the view where you can see it looks like a book.

A view of the inside. There is some SERIOUS scoring and fan folding going on with this thing. :) I could NOT have done it without my amazing Scor Pal!! Thanks TONS, Diana!!!! The book measures 5.5" x 6" on the outside. I used more lace and some pearls on the framed sentiment on the inside. I also made a pocket on the inside left where a tag will be placed for a personal note from the family to the nurses.

More Wild Orchid Blooms and another Whimsy sentiment.  I think this looks much better in person than it does in the pics.

So that's it for me today. Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see all the amazing creations by my teamies! And then we would truly love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
