BINGO Greetings @ Aud Sentiments

Well we have a new challenge for you over at Aud Sentiments, and this time we have a BINGO board to inspire. All you have to do is use a line, or if you are feeling ambitious why not go for a full house?, and tell us what you have used, and don't forget to include that all important sentiment.

I have used the central vertical line of Stitching (real), flowers and glitter:
The sentiment was stitched using Colaris DMC thread on black 16ct aida. The edges were frayed before adding to the pale blue glitter card on the white card base. I then layered together some paper flowers, papermania bloomers and papermania blitters on top of some skeleton leaves, to create a floral focal point.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
notjustcards - Anything Goes
AYLI - favourite none card project - for those of ou who regularly visit my blog you will know that Cross Stitching is a regular craft for me as  regularly post updates from my WIP as well as posting smaller finishes throughout the month - so I made a cross-stitch greeting for this card
Fussy and Fancy #219 Anything Goes
CASology #311 Flip (the background is stitched rather than the design itself)

I have some new garden pictures for you today:
 My sunflowers to replace the dead Rosemary.

 The Rose is growing back after being eaten by a tiny green caterpillar.

 It has its own sentries this time.

 The Poinsettia doesn't look great at the moment - think I might need to move it into the shed?

This Nasturtium just keeps growing, even with its caterpillar friends:
And finally I have a WIP update for you all (it has been a while I know):
This dino is now at over 73 hours (over 163hrs for the whole sampler) and there are still 2 dinos to go yet!.

Thanks for looking and I cannot wait to see what you create,
