Bingo Challenge

At Addicted to Stamps and More it is their 4th Bingo Challenge and a very interesting mix on the board this time. Great samples from the team there as always.

I chose the black-free and stripes row.

I had this piece of card that I had cut a large circle from for something else so I made some striped paper and fitted it inside so it showed through the hole--then I folded the whole thing to make a card. The circle is edged with some peel-off strips that mold nicely around any shape. The lantern is recycled from a card we received last year. The sentiment is another peel-off--I getting rid of them nicely though I did find lots more in my Christmas Box!

Added  some fancy wool instead of ribbon and that's it.

This is a really creative use of what you've got. It's a lovely card and I particularly like the stripy paper peeping through on the black.
