It's Bugaboo Bingo Time!

Who likes Bingo? All of you? Great! The Saturday Challenge over on...
Catch The Bug
has started! This week you get to choose a recipe from a bingo card. Easy!
This will be my first official challenge GDT card (my 'inner goddess' is waving her pom-poms and dancing a jig!) hope you've caught my others too, for the new releases and the Friday freebies!!
Here's the bingo card...
I've chosen to use the middle line. Starts with E- Elephant, Ribbon and Die-cut. It's that easy!
I used Edward-Elephant-present and as always, I've done a bit of 3D-ing by cutting bits off the second and third layers and sticking them on again. Love this image, I used it once before and won a first prize! (pom-poms still waving!) I've used my Scalloped edged Circle Nesties, and coloured everything with Promarkers. The ribbon is wired and came wrapped around a present...ohoo yes, kept the ribbon, can't remember what the pressie was!
I've also added a little extra, gems, glitter and card candi, just to jazz it up a bit and because I've found a few challenges I want to add this card to.
The black, blue and red are all plain card, with their edges coloured with the Promarkers, using the same colours I'd use on Edward Elephant and his friend. (Click the pictures to make them bigger)
The Papers are by Kate Knight, 'Totally Tropical', Summer Papers and were a freebie 6x6 stack from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine last year.
The font 'Happy Birthday' is a freebie. You might recognise it as similar to the Mr Men's signature. It's called Little Miss Cursive and you can download it here! it has little flowers over the i's. I've also used a deckled edged rectangle Nestie for the sentiment but cut it to size so it would fit. That's it! Hope you can come over and join in, tell them Lyn sent you!! Thanks for stopping by! (adding more challenges later-not here. off to a carnival!)
