Bingo Card

Today's commission card was for my pal's daughter who is going to be 40 in August and the theme Bingo.   As Samantha has always been a bit of a "tomboy" I knew that I couldn't do anything too flowery.

I designed and created the bingo card in Publisher and personalised it with the title Birthday Bingo and instead of a serial number down the side I put Sam40.  The numbers that do not have buttons on are all relevant to her Birthday: 30 August - thus 30 and 8, year of birth 19 + 70 and this year 20 + 10 and her age 40.

I added a bear from Forever Friends cd., and some matching ribbon, bow and flower to compliment the buttons.  Greetings and the bingo card are mounted on green mirri card.
