Addicted to Stamps and More - Bingo Challenge #5

Hello dear blog friends!  We have a fun and popular challenge for you this week at Addicted to Stamps and More! It's Bingo Challenge #5 - whoot whoo!! The fun of the bingo challenge is that you get to choose how you want to play.  You can use any row or column (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) to make your card and in the middle is the ever popular FREE Space (just try not to use your FREE the same as one of the other items already on the bingo board).  I chose the top row for my card this week and used Red, Green and die cuts (the holly leaves and berries). 
Cardstock: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Crumb Cake.
Sentiment: Curly Cute (in gumball green ink)
Other: Simply Scored Scoring Tool (lines at top and bottom of sentiment are, white signo gel pen. Chevron texture folder for the dry embossing.
The holly is from a retired SU sizzix die that I just loved last year (so sad they retired it).  I kept it CAS this time (well... I guess technically it's not clean since I sponged and inked up the edges a bit - but is it a simple design with very few embellishments).  This is really unusual for me if I'm not specifically creating for that reason - the other ladies on our DT are rubbing off on me.  Kylie started a sister challenge not long ago called Addicted to CAS and a couple of the ladies I'm team members with on this challenge are also designers over there.  They've had a fabulous response to their new challenge so far.  My card doesn't qualify for this challenge even though it is CAS - the theme over there right now is Bauble. So while I'm in the CAS mood maybe I'll go make something with a bauble and join in too (might even use this bingo board again as my inspiration).

This will be our last challenge for 2012 but we will be back in the new year with lots more fun ideas. I hope that you have been inspired to play along with us for our Bingo Challenge at ATS&M this week.  I can't wait to see what you create!  The other ladies have practically out-done themselves this week with their gorgeous creations - so please go check them out and leave them a little love while you are there.  Til next time... Hugs and Happy Crafting
