Bingo Birthday Card

 Wanted to share a birthday card I made for a very special person turning 18 years old soon.  It's a he so I wanted to make sure it was not girly at all.   I got the idea from a card I found on a blop called Simply Stamped.  This is the orginal card she made.  So adorable!

  One of my blogs I follow for great challenges:  Just Ad Ink had a wonderful sketch this week.  Very simple but I thought would be perfect for a simple card.


Then to get a great color pallet I always check out Color Throwdown for their challenges.  I am never disappointed. 

 When I saw the Simply Stamped card I thought how perfect since I bought my Bingo impression plate, it's Tim Holtz, before Christmas and can't stop thinking of ideas to use it for.   

 After I embossed the Bingo Card I colored in the BINGO word with black maker and also dusted the whole thing with black chalk.  I think it gave it a little bit of a distressed look and also helps to see the numbers.  

 Pretty simple huh?  Sometimes that's all that is needed to make something special for someone special.   It's the thought that counts!
