Framed Sleigh

Framed Sleigh - This fortnights challenge at Craft Your Days Away is embellishment Bingo. We are sponsored by the awesome Simon Says Stamp. The have the most wonderful crafty stuff on their site.

Take a look at this fabulous Bingo Card. I went from top right diagonally down to the bottom left. I used pins, Flowers, and gems.
My card is a framed card. My talented friend Milly makes these cards all the time and I thought I would give it a whirl. I used the George cartridge to cut the center of the frame. My Santa's sleigh was cut with the Christmas cartridge and the building were cut with Winter Wonderland.

My DP is K and Company's Visions of Christmas. My flowers are Prima's. The white centers are pulled off a stem. My 2 year old grandson was very enthusiastic in his helping to pull apart the stems!
For my pin, I used a variety of Bead Gallery beads. The camera did not capture the beauty of the blue/green hue of the big, center bead. It is quite lovely and looks like frozen ice. The crystal corsage pins were on clearance at Walmart about 2 years ago. I wish I could find more of them. They are my favorites!

My gemstones are Darcie.
