Coneflowers

This week at the challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #133, Silke has set up a bingo card. I have to tell you that this stumped me because I stink at bingo. It was my grandmother's favorite game and I remember going once and it was the last game of the night - you know the one that always pays the most. Well, I yelled bingo and everyone started leaving and then they realized I didn't have bingo. Oh was I ever embarrassed. I never played again!!

How can I pass up on Silke's challenge? I first tried to do the shaped card - I went through about ten sheets of paper trying to create something. So I scraped that idea. Then I thought hmmm...I always like the blackout game, but that would mean doing a shaped card - not again. I settled on the middle row, pink, embossing, and pearls.

I am also entering this card into the Jugs 100th sketch challenge. It's so hard to play all the challenges that are out there, but I am trying to do more. I really liked their sketch this week and I thought it fit this beautfiul Flourishes With Gratitude set.

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome weekend!
Theresa

LOL! I can totally see myself shouting out Bingo! prematurely...so I laugh in commiseration.
All the pink you've got going on lately has me thinking pink too. Feels strange, but good :)
I absolutely love the shading on these flowers!!
