Crafting When We Can #3 Bingo

Not so many entries for our sketch and fairytale theme but thanks to those of you entered. Our next challenge at CWWC is Bingo - just choose any line (horizontal, vertical or diagonal), four corners or a full house and let us know which you chose. We are being sponsored by Sew Many Cards  this time and the DT were given images to use. I chose Morty Christmas Sleigh:

This is our Bingo card:

I chose Christmas, distressing and anything but a card to make a Christmas decoration. Morty is coloured with promarkers then cut out and mounted 3d. The decoration is made using Grand oval scalloped nesties. I've cut the largest one twice in gold mirri card and stuck them together to form the back. The next size down was cut out of green card and this was distressed with gold ink around the edges before being mounted onto the gold mirri. The backing paper is tissue paper from Costco which I've crumpled then glued to a plain oval shape, the edges and crumples were all distressed with gold. 
The gorgeous ribbon is from Costco. I've finished off with poinsettias (from WOC), ivy leaves (from Joanna Sheen), various flower and leaf embellishments from Crafty Bitz, some holly flourishes from Spellbinders and some glitter to highlight.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the other DT makes, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
