Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - January 2016 - Anything goes or the option of the BINGO BOARD

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

 The topic for January 2016 is "anything goes with the option of the BINGO board".
For the BINGO board you have to pick a horizontal, vertical of diagonal line and use all those items on your card eg the bottom horizontal line of brads, hearts and buttons.

Don't forget you do have the option of anything goes plus if you do use the optional theme (this month it is "the above BINGO board") you will get 2 chances in the prize draw.

Don't forget to enter the challenge you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image.

There is a change to the Gruffies and Guests Challenge for 2016.  It has been decided not to look for sponsors for the challenges and instead the Design Team members will be offering a prize.

For January 2016 I am sponsoring the challenge and have picked the option of the BINGO.
I have got a prize but I am keeping it a surprise for the winner.  All I will say one item has something to do with House Mouse and that is all I am saying!!!
I am getting ahead for Christmas 2016 and I have used a Joanna Sheen House Mouse decoupage image.  I have had it for some years now but couldn't bear to part with it.  It took some time cutting around that holly wreath but it was worth it in the end.

The holly backing paper I used from the House Mouse Triple CD.

As for the BINGO board I have gone for the bottom horizontal row of brads (flower brads at the corners of the image), hearts (heart buttons and wooden heart coloured with a Promarker) and buttons (heart buttons).

As you will see I have also done the final vertical column of lace, embossing (wet or dry) and buttons.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
