Anyone for Bingo !

It's time for another challenge over at The Stamp Man and this time we have loads of choices for you! We'd like you to select some ingredients from our recipe bingo grid and make us something gorgeous! Take any 3 ingredients in a line, horizontally, vertically or diagonally and use them to make us a fabulous creation. Simple as that ! You can use more than 3 if you want to, but you must be sure to use at least 3 and let us know in your post which line you have used.

Embossing powder
Stitches (real or faux)
Die cut
Homemade background (no patterned paper)
Sparkle and bling

The line that I've used from the grid is Die Cut, Ribbon and Stitching. I knew I definitely had to get stitching in there somewhere !

The main image is an Aspects of Design Scalloped Framie stamp, cut out using a Scalloped Circle Nestability. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp from the Odds and Ends set. The little butterfly has been stamped onto vellum using Archival Cobalt ink. The left hand panel is made using a Tim Holtz stamp from the Adverts set and it's been stamped several times with Archival Olive ink. The right hand panel is made using the Cuttlebug Stylised Flower EF and I've stamped on the inside of the folder with a stamp from the Tim Holtz Reflections set with Archival Olive ink. I've then blended DI over it. Both panels have been sewn around the edge with my sewing machine. The 2 tickets are made using the Tim Holtz Sizzlit Ticket die and 2 stamps from the Odds and Ends set.

The brad and metal flower are from the Tim Holtz Foliage embellishments and the letter is a Tim Holtz Type Charm. The word 'life' has been made from Grunge Board letters and I've covered them with Olive acrylic paint, sanded them when dry and then rubbed Walnut Stain DI over them. The background paper is from the Prima Botanical paper set.

I'm entering this project into the following challenges:
