Bingo Challenge @ Inky Chicks

A new challenge starts today at the Inky Chicks Challenge blog. The theme is Bingo and our sponsor is "All Dressed Up" Stamps.

Here's my inspiration card with an image called "Love My Cuddly Toys":

This type of card is called "Concertina" and there's a simple and clear tutorial here, which explains how to make one. I wanted to add a tag for a personal message, because I'm sending this card to a friend of mine, so I glued the bottom of the card, to prevent the tag from falling out.

I also made an envelope (based on this tutorial):

 So not really planned, but now I have a set of a card and an envelope, which is even better :)

Just a reminder, here's our BINGO:

**(I went for the Lace/Doily/Butterflies).

Do join the challenge to win wonderful prizes!

    1. Hello Sharon!! Thanks for your lovely comment!!
      The papers are from the paper pad by Basic Grey - Two Scoops. I cannot even remember where I have it from, because it's not a new one.
