Jessie's Bingo Birthday

Good Morning & a happy Friday to you all!
I was asked to make a card for a friends neighbour. 
The only information I was given was that it would be her 80th Birthday
& that she likes bingo! 
Here's what I came up with!

I just couldn't find a digi image that I liked anywhere!
 Luckily,  a crafty friend, Lindsay,  owner & artist for the fantastic LEJ Designs , 
came to the rescue & drew this image especially for me! What a Star!
She also did another which I haven't used as yet but I reckon I will soon!
If you'd like the image contact Linsday via her shop & ask her to add it!
I'm sure lot's of people would love to have a Bingo image to colour!
The papers, letters & money are from a free page which I found on
The circle sentiment button was made in my graphics programme.
I tried to match it to the bingo balls on the paper!

I coloured her with a mix of flexmarkers & promarkers.
I cut her out with a circe nestie & inked the edges wth a liquid chalk inkpad.
I tried to create a look of smudged lipstick

Four little £20 notes all stacked up (adding up to80 yeah)

A side view showing the BINGO letters arranged around the image
& the sheer ribbon double bow which had actually been tied for 
another project but hadn't been used.

The inside of the card.
Jessie was apparently over the moon with her card! Yay!

  3. This card is brilliant Dawn, so well thought out in Every detail and it's wonderful. I think there's going to be one very happy 80year old bingo player when her big day arrives. Hope she's not disappointed when she realizes the £80 is not actually money to spend next time she goes to bingo :-) but I bet she will be showing this special card to her fellow players ..... can just hear the Oooohs and Ahhhhhs now. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
