A Thoughtful Donkey for DS4J'S #108 challenge: BINGO!

Hi there!

I've had this adorable donkey image in anticipation for DS4J's new challenge for weeks now and was SO excited to finally use it! This month's challenge is a Bingo challenge and I've gotta say that it was not as easy as I suspected, but it was definitely a lot of fun!  The idea is to use three spaces in a row on this Bingo board, whether they are up and down, across or sideways. 

The three spaces I choose for this card were in the top row: die cuts, flowers and faux stitching.


Isn't he just so cute?!  I struggled with a background and first tried watercolor to match the flowers, but watercolor never turns out as vibrant, so I nixed it. I love the background stamp that I used, although I often forget about it. I'm going to have to make an effort to remember to break it out more often!  

I considered a sentiment. Perhaps "Sorry I was such an ass", but I couldn't fit it in and I don't really have to apologize to anyone for anything (that I know of....) so I omitted it LOL. 

Thanks for stopping by! Please consider entering the challenge this month! And don't forget to like DS4J's Facebook page for your chance to win a digi just in time for Valentine's Day! 

I'm submitting to the following challenges:
Try it on Tuesday -- Using bright colors is my favorite :)

  21. Thank you for your kind and encouraging comment on my card for PTT Anything Goes challenge. Your card is adorable with the cute donkey! Love the colourfulness (is there such a word in English or did I just invent it?) too.

    1. Thank you, Outi! I had to look it up and it appears like colorfulness IS in fact a word LOL English is my first (and only) language and I hadn't heard of it before. Usually we say something like "I love how colorful it is", but I think I like your word much better :) I am following you now and am looking forward to what else you create!
