Prickley Pear Vintage Bingo Tag

Hi everyone, my project today is a tag I designed around this wonderful vintage bingo card image from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.  For the base of the card I used a tag, inked it with frayed burlap and antique linen distress inks, I then placed a glimmer screen and sprayed it with caramel apple glimmer mist, after I dried it with the heat tool I embossed it with the bingo embossing folder from Tim Holtz, perfect match for the stamped image.  I inked the embossed areas and edges of the tag with walnut stain to make the embossing pop a bit more.  
Here is a close up of the seam binding bow and mini rose, I punched the little branches and leaves and added some glimmer mist with Perfect Pearls powder for that extra sparkle.  The stick pin I put together with pearls and beads from my stash.
I stamped the image on kraft cardstock with distress embossing ink and heat embossed with black super fine embossing powder, once embossed I inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink and also shaded the number blocks.  I matted the image with black cardstock and added the decorative fleur de lis accent which is a diecut from Spellbinders.
Well, that's it for today, thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day.
