Happy Monday Friends - For all my U.S. Friends I hope that you are having a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!!  My weekend has been all about studying....I start my next take at the CPA Exams tomorrow with the tax's to hoping the 2nd time around is a charm!

Today is a fun Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge day and this challenge we have are playing BINGO!!!
For my creation I have put together a fun little gift set!  This card features the fabulous By the Beach Peeker by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD from the Peekers 3 Collection!  I love this cutie peeking into her beach pail to see what treasures she has found at the beach!
Here is the BINGO card for our challenge.....we can't wait to see what you all create with our challenge!  For my card I have used the the middle row of Blue - Flowers - Glitter!
My card features the MME Stella Rose Hattie Paper Collection.  The gathered lace behind the brown polka pot paper is from WOC.
By the Beach Peeker has been colored with Copics and pastel pencils.  The ruffles on her skirt, trim on her shirt, and the starfish all got a coat of Diamond Stickles.  The sand was first colored with Copics, then I used my Luminate Solar Gold Silks and painted over the top to give the sand a beautiful shimmer, and finally I topped it off with a mixture of Sand, Toffee, and Earth ultra fine flowersoft.  I wish you could see this IRL as it is gorgeous with the shimmer that appears through the flowersoft from the Luminarte Silks!
From this view you can see the shimmer from the Silks peeking through the flowersoft sand!  You can also see the shine of the pail that I made by coating the pail with Diamond Glaze.  Doesn't it look like a real life beach pail?  I love it!
WOC flower arrangement was made using a 40mm Trellis Rose, Chrysanthemum, 25mm Tea Rose, 15mm Roses, Sweetheart Blossoms, 4mm Rosebuds, Gold Glitter Holly Berries, and then finished it off with a small sequin butterfly.  All flowers were coated with Diamond Stickles.  I love using Diamond Stickles when I use yellow as one of my main colors because the Diamond Stickles then gives a "golden glitter" color next to yellow.
The bottom of the easel card features a Whimsy Sentiment and a Gold Decorative Metal Corner finishes off the bottom nicely.  Then I placed a butterfly tea light with a candle holder on the card to complete my gift set.
Here is one more angle view for you all.  I hope you have enjoyed my creation!  I can't wait to see what you create for the BINGO Challenge!  Head over to the WOC Challenge Blog to see what my fabulous DT Members have created!!!
