Come play BINGO...JUGS32 57

***I have 2 posts today - if you are looking for my MTME project, please continue to scroll down :) Thanks***

Hi Everyone! Time for another Technique challenge with Just Us Girls. This week, I am the lucky one to pick the technique so, I chose the making of a Pocket Card. There are quite a variety (NINE) pocket tutorials to choose from that can be found on Splitcoaststampers HERE if you need a little inspiration & direction :) I hope you come join the fun with Just Us Girls & our May Featured Designer: LeAnne & our Special Guest Designer: Teresa Kline.

***Keep the entries coming! Just Us Girls is currently have a DT calling! - if any of you are interested - please see the
Just Us Girls site for COMPLETE details!***Here is my Criss Cross Pocket card & Pocket:

I started with a blank Jenni Bolin BINGO card - perfect sturdy base for my Pocket card :)

I stitched the complete perimeter of the pocket.

I stitched several pieces of K&Company cs to the BINGO card, added a bow, button & tag. I love the Melissa Frances Vintage image of the lil' children - so sweet & innocent. I matted on a frame that was cut using a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S5-019 Labels Eight die template. For a little extra, I added a beautiful resin like flower embellishment (in the lower right corner).

For all the details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls (found on my side bar) as well as LeAnne! Once you have your project photographed, be sure to go to Just Us Girls and post a direct link to your project on our site. If you upload to on online gallery, please be sure to label your project as JUGS32.

Deadline to be considered for the weekly "Chic of the Week" will be 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, May 13th. Our Inlinkz tool will also close at that time. Our top pick "Chic of the Week" will be announced on Friday morning following the deadline.
