Perfect Sentiments: "Bingo"

Hello everyone and welcome to the second day of our one year birthday/anniversary challenge celebration at The Perfect Sentiment!  We have four fun challenges planned for you that we will spread out over the next few days. We have sponsors who have donated generous prizes for each challenge and since we are doing this blog hop style, there are hidden prizes along the way. The good news is you will have 3 full weeks to complete all the challenges and blog hops. There will also be a grand prize that you will be eligible for if you complete all the challenges!You can see the Grand Prize and add you name to the inlinkz here once your complete all four of the challenges.

The challenge this time is "Bingo"
The challenge: create a card with a sentiment for an occasion or holiday of your choice
The twist: use three items across, down, or diagonally from the Bingo chart
Here is the bingo chart:
My "Bingo" is diagonally - pearls, glitter, and dry embossing.
My card is 4 1/4"x5 1/2."  I used black cardstock for the base.  I cut some orange cardstock at 4"x5 1/4" and then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Skeleton Scroll embossing folder.  I cut a strip of pumpkin patterned paper at 2"x5 1/4" and some black cardstock 1/8" larger and adhered it to the middle of the card.  The pumpkin patterned paper is from the DCWV Fall and Halloween Stack.  I used Teddy Bear Parade for my cute little pumpkin teddy bear.  He is cut at 3 1/2."  I flocked the bear with some brown flocking powder.  I added orange glitter to the pumpkin treat bag and green Stickles to the green parts of the pumpkin outfit.  I also added some glossy accents to the bear's nose and eyes.  The senitment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps and I hand cut the banner.  I finished off the front of the card with some black pearls on the treat bag and in the corners of the card.

 I also finished the inside of this card.  I cut some orange cardstock at 4"x5 1/4," and the pumpkin patterned paper at 3 3/4"x5."  I cut a piece of white cardstock at 2 1/2"x3 1/2."  I stamped another sentiment on the inside as well, again from Scrappy Moms Stamps.

Now head on over to Sam's blog to see what she created for this challenge.  Then be sure to link up your project at The Perfect Sentiment.  I can't wait to see what you create!
